    It could be in the right context.

    Re: He is missing his French classes this month.

    Is the fiollowing context correct for the sentence in question?

    (Before the beginning of a French class at university)
    Student1: Where's Jim?
    Student 2: No idea. He is missing his French classes this month.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    I think "skipping" would be more natural.
