This letter gives permission to the student that they can continue going to school and that without their illness harming other students and peers.

This letter is useful for those students who have an illness that seems to be contagious, but in fact is not. The student may have been asked by the principal to provide this letter before being allowed to attend the particular school.

This letter will be present at clinics or even hospitals or even the school may provide the letter to the student to tell them to sign it from their doctor.
