Subject: Homework extension

Dear [Teacher’s name], I hope you are well. I’m emailing about the homework due on [DATE], and to ask whether I’d be able to get an extension till [DATE you can hand in by]. I have been unable to work on it so far due to [e.g. unexpected personal stuff/ family situation/ unanticipated caring responsibilities (I’m a young carer) - can put more detail in if you want] and would appreciate an extension so that I can do the work to the best of my ability rather than rushing it.

Thank you!
