    Here's what I would write:

    Dear Parent/Guardian

    As you may already know, Mrs. _________ will be taking some time off for medical reasons. During this time I will be her substitute teacher, so I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Ms._____ and I am a first year substitute. I graduated from ______ University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in May of this year. I am married and I enjoy knitting, tennis, and going to church. I have lived in ____town all my life and attended ______ high school.
    Now that you know a little about me, I'd love to meet you in person! Please feel free to stop by during my planning period (1:00-1:35pm daily) or after school until 3:30 pm. You may call my cell number below if you have any questions or concerns outside of these hours.
    I consider it a privilege to be your child's teacher for the next several weeks and I hope to meet you soon!

    Sincerely,
    Ms. _____________

    I would think a brief, to the point, friendly note would be sufficient. Of course, if you don't actually want to have the parents come in, you could just leave that part out or mention an upcoming parents night or something...
