How to Write a Tardy Note

Save

Your child is practically guaranteed to miss at least a few days of school during his younger years. Whenever this occurs, the school requires a reason for your child missing time, even if the student is only an hour late. A tardy note written by a parent or guardian is usually all the school administration needs in these cases. Such notes are kept on file as proof that the student was rightfully excused from school during a particular time period.

  • Write the date in one of the top corners of the note. This verifies the date you produced the note.

  • Start the note with the name of the tardy student. Then, write whether the student was just tardy or actually absent from school.

  • Write the hours or dates the student missed.

  • Give a brief explanation for the student's absence. In most cases, a vague explanation is acceptable (For example: "He was sick with the flu." "He had a doctor's appointment.")

  • Write your signature on the bottom of the note to verify it.

Tips & Warnings

  • Some schools require proof for the absence if the student misses an excessive amount of school. In these cases, a doctor's note, proof of a death in the family or other verification is required along with the tardy note.
