Dear Mr. Jones
Please excuse my daughter, Nina Edwell, for her absence from school on February 4. Unfortunately she sprained her ankle in an after school dance class.
While Nina is able to return to school, her doctor at the emergency room wrote instructions that she not participate in any physical activities for the next week. Nina will need to be excused from taking Gym class for this reason.
I would deeply appreciate if you would inform her physical education teacher about this situation.
