Personal chat between student and instructor

Hi, I am looking for an option that allows students to send me a message as an instructor. Actually, I am only interested in reporting absences.
I use discussions for a Q+A where they can ask questions, but that is visible to everyone.

    @Kees.M.181 For automating reporting of attendance, I tend to recommend using a True/False quiz per class session (I was present today. T or F?) and then you can associate a grade item to give attendance points. Or hide the grade item/exclude from the final grade if you just want to keep track of but not give grades for attendance.
