Dear Professor _____,
My name is Konstantin Yegorov, from your 8:15 2100 English class. I’m sorry that I missed today’s exam. I got very sick and was hospitalized this past weekend. I wasn’t let out up until tonight. I have the paperwork, and I will provide it the next time we have class. I also wanted to know if you can please give me a chance to retake this exam. I apologize for the inconvenience that I may have caused and am looking forward to hearing from you. Enjoy your night.
