Writing an excuse letter to my school due to absence in school for catching cold, i.e. cough

Application to inform reason for taking a day leave

Usually in such letters, where you are informing about leave afterwards, it implies, that the severity of the event was as such, that you couldn’t inform in advance. Yes, it may have been an emergency.
So, take care of the same, while writing the letter.
