In the unfortunate event of a death in the family, here’s a simple template you can use to write a letter to the teacher about a death in family. This template is very useful if your child is missing school because of a death in the family.
Dear [name of teacher],
This is to inform you that [child’s name], studying in [child’s grade in school] will be unable to attend classes for [number of days] due to a death in our family. We have to attend the funeral held in [location] so we will have to travel.
We will ensure that [child’s name] can keep up with [his/her] studies once we get back. Thus, we would like to ask for your assistance in gathering the work that [his/her] classes will cover while [child’s name] is away.
We will help [him/her] catch up with the lessons while traveling.
Thank you so much for understanding and your help.
