Bonjour Emre can,

s'excuser de = to apologise for

il s'est excusé de ne pas avoir apporté ses lunettes  -  He apologised for not bringing his glasses

 

See link here (it is a little advanced - look where the negation is positioned in each example): Negating infinitives in indirect speech

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
