Dear Dr. Murphy
Our daughter, Hanna Carter, is a student in Mrs. Graystone's fourth grade class, and will need to be absent from school on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 3rd and 4th.
A family situation has occurred which requires the entire family to travel out of state on those days. We are planning to return Wednesday night and have her back in school Thursday. We have also written a note to ask Mrs. Graystone to assign Hanna reading and homework to help her stay caught up during our time away.
If the family situation worsens or requires extra time, we will notify you by phone as soon as possible.Sincerely
