If you need a face to face letter
Q: Who will now be giving out face-to-face letters while schools are closed?
A: The parent should go to the nearest district office and show identification. The district office should get in touch with the principal, if possible, check parent identification, and then use ATS function SBIO to locate the student and then run the face to face RFTF function and print out the letter. Sign it on behalf of the principal and have the parent sign in their presence.
