Dear Employer’s Name,

This email is accompanying my medical leave form to inform you that I am requesting medical leave for three weeks from DATE to DATE.

I will resume work on DATE. My husband has injured his back in an automobile accident and has been ordered by his doctor to take a three-week treatment. Enclosed is a copy of her instructions.

I understand that you will employ a substitute teacher to take my sixth grade class for the three weeks, and I have prepared the lessons plans that cover the classwork and extracurricular activities.

I have also included a short description of each student to help the substitute get to know the children.

I have completed the medical leave form required by the school, and according to my contract, I am allowed to take emergency medical leave. 

You or the substitute can reach me at 555-123-4567 or a if there are any questions of if they require any help I can give.

Thank you for your kind consideration of my request.
