    I've just emailed 4 of my teachers telling them I won't be in on Mon and asking if they could send me any catch up work... but it's just hit me that emailing them over the weekend might be a bit weird? Especially as one is a man? My message read as follows: Hi Mr Smith, Unfortunately, I have a trial day at (school name) on Monday so I won't be able to attend the French class. I'll copy out the notes I've missed but if there's any other catch up work I need to do would you mind either sending it to me or putting it on the school site? Sorry for the inconvenience, (my name)Does that sound too friendly or am I overthinking this? None of my friends have ever emailed a teacher and I've missed classes in the past but not emailed them, do you think they'll think I'm getting too close? Thanks for your time!
    You're overthinking it don't worry. I've sent quite a few emails to teachers at the weekend regarding missing work or classes and none of them have cared

    Yep, it's the email they use for school if that makes sense?

    Haha emailing is fine, it's how everyone at a professional level communicates. Don't DM teachers, that would be a little weird

    It's completely fine. You'll eventually get to a point, like me, where you're in a book store on a Saturday afternoon emailing your English literature teacher pictures of critical analysis of Chaucers characters from Canterbury tales for recommendations... or not.
    Either way it's fine. It shows that you're taking your work seriously and they'll appreciate that.

    I'm a teacher, that's absolutely normal (assuming it's their school email address), I receive emails like that from my students all the time.
