An Excuse Letter for Absence or Tardiness is used by parents or guardians of a child (or children) to explain the absence or tardiness of the child and to request that the same be excused.
When a child is absent from school, they are required to present a letter of explanation (or an excuse letter) from their parents or guardians. If the absence is for more than a certain number of days, some schools also require that a doctor's certificate be submitted if the absence was for a health-related concern.
On the other hand, some schools may require students to present an excuse letter for tardiness from their parents especially if said tardiness is habitual or has exceeded the maximum amount of tardiness that the school may have set.
