School Withdrawal Letter [Samples]

You must notify the former school in writing of your child’s withdrawal and provide the exact date of final attendance. 

You can mail or hand deliver this, but you should preserve a copy and make a note of the date and who it was sent to. 

You may be asked to fill out a withdrawal form by the school, and you should request a copy of that form as well.

Sample 1 – School Withdrawal Letter

Dear [Name of Principal],

This letter is to inform you that I need to withdraw my child [Name of Child] from your private school due to personal hardship. 

On [Date], my husband who was paying for our child’s education died of heart failure. I have enclosed the medical documents and death certificate.

His death has left us without means of financial support, so I need to find employment as soon as possible. 

My husband’s life insurance policy was enough to cover the mortgage of our home, but I need to work to pay for food, clothing and other things. 

I have enclosed the withdrawal forms required by your school. Since the semester started only two weeks ago, I am within the time limit, according to school policy, to receive a full refund for this semester’s fees. 

If you have any questions or need more information I can be reached at 555-123-4557 or at lisa@email.com.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Sincerely,

Signature
