Teachers: Maternity leave letters to parents?

I am about to take time off due to maternity leave and am in need of a letter to send home to my student's parents informing them of my leave, and who my replacement is. Does anyone happen to have a sample letter that they wouldn't mind sharing?

Thanks!

Would love to see it myself. Both myself and my co-teacher will be out next school year.

I've been searching online and nothing really seems to work. I'm hoping that someone has one that they can share.

At my former district, the principal wrote the letter. It basically stated that Teacher A will be going on a medical leave (never said pregnancy) and his/her expected return date will be _____________


Teacher B has been hired as a replacement during this interim period. Teacher B's qualifications and experience were then stated.

Then a quick closing paragraph states something like we appreciate Teacher B coming in to help us fullfill the educational goals at ________(school name) If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

Principal

Then after Teacher B starts, she writes her own introduction letter .

My teaching partner went out last year in March and the principal was the one that sent out the letter. As stated above, it mentioned when she was leaving, who was taking over and that any questions/concerns should be directed to him.

DS7's teacher had a baby last school year. She wrote a note to each parent letting them know that her & her family were expecting the birth of their baby boy & she will be out of work from this date until this date to help prepare her family (she had a daughter who was 2) & get ready for the birth and to recooperate after the birth. She told us who the teacher would be while she would be out. Very nicely worded letter home & she was just an amazing teacher, our babies are only a month or so apart in age. She sent home a present for my DD & my DS sent her a present for her DS.

This is what I have come up with. Does it sound ok?

Dear Parents,
I hope that everyone has started the New Year off well. Some of you may not be aware that I am pregnant and am about to take a few weeks off for maternity leave. My intentions are to work until February 10th, at which point a substitute will take over for me. I plan to return in mid March, barring any complications.

In my absence Mrs. M will be working with your children. She has substitute taught for me on a few occasions this school year and has come highly recommended by Mrs. G. Prior to my absence, Mrs. M will be in the classroom getting to know the students and what their specific goals and objectives are. I am confident that she will do a wonderful job while I am away, and if she has any questions she has Mrs. G, Ms. C, and Ms. L at hand to help as needed.

During my absence I plan to check my email regularly, if you have any questions you can contact me at ------. You can also contact Mrs. G as she is very knowledgeable about your children and their specific needs.

Thank you so much for your support.


I teach special education in an inclusive classroom so there will still be another teacher and 2 aids in the classroom while I am out.
