    not a teacher

    The beginning is fine, but not the end.

    Re: short notice

    It's fine for me without "for" before "that morning". Maybe it's only OK in BrE.

    I have plans that day.
    She has plans that morning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
