    (Not a teacher)

    It isn't incorrect. If you wish to make it sound less repetitive there are various things you could say. I am presuming it is a job:

    'I am off work on Monday.'
    'I'm not at work on Monday.'
    'I have a holiday on Monday.' (not really specific to a job)

    But what you said sounds fine.

    You can also say:
    I will take/avail leave on Monday.
