A school secretary cover letter is an important part of your job application package.

As far as school secretary cover letter sections are concerned, salutation, opening and closing paragraphs are extremely important.

While the rest of the letter is also important, these three sections are usually what the employer looks at when he skims through a cover letter. Therefore it is very important to ensure that these three areas of a cover letter are given special attention.
