Dear Parents & Carers,
Mr Smith has asked me to explain why he is unable to be in school this week. Last week Mrs Smith was admitted to hospital where she is undergoing treatment, and so needs to be at home with his family. He is very sorry to be missing all the school Christmas activities and celebrations. He sends his best wishes to you all for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Mrs Sibley will be in charge of the school till he returns and will deal with any problems you may have.
I am sure that you would like me to let the Smith family know that your thoughts are very much with them and hope that Mrs Smith is well enough to be home for Christmas.
