Teachers enjoy a special connection with students and their families. Announcing maternity leave can create anxiety for all involved parties. This sample letter to parents helps make a maternity leave a positive and cherished announcement.

Expecting a child is a time of wonder and excitement. However, it can also be a time of anxiety. For teachers, the need to notify others about an upcoming maternity leave extends to the parents of the students they teach.

This sample letter not only announces your impending bundle of joy, but also clarifies the dates and terms of your maternity leave. It also helps to assure parents that their students will be well cared for in your absence and that you will remain engaged throughout your time away.
