Write ABSENT as the first word of the message followed by a space. Then give your Name, Student Number, Course and Reason for absence. Failure to put a space after the word ABSENT will mean that the text will not be delivered and therefore your absence will not be authorised. Keep the reason for your absence short and to the point, if you do not do this then you will use multiple texts which are costly and are difficult for us to track.
e.g. ABSENT Jane Smith 10101010 Intro to Beauty Ill Health
In the title of the e-mail put ABSENT. In the message give your Name, Student Number, Course and Reason for absence.
