How do I Pre-Assign my Substitute? How to Pre-Assign a Substitute
Can I cancel my absence?

Yes! But only up to 24 hours before the absence begins. Once the absence is within 24 hours of the absence begin time, you must contact the school to cancel.

Can I assign a substitute to my absence?

Yes!  Choose Pre-Assign when you create your absence if you already have a substitute who has already consented to substituting for you.

I want a certain substitute but I am not sure if they can substitute for my absence.
