Using Google Apps Script, you can automatically create Google Classroom with the data in the Google Sheet, and paste the Class code in the Google Sheet.
Complete the steps on this page to create a Google Sheets add-on that tracks attendance for Google Classroom courses delivered using Google Meet conferencing.
Nice spot via @barrielroberts/@alicekeeler for an official Google Apps Script quickstart which combines Google Sheets, Google Classroom and Admin Reports which lets you create an automated Google Meets attendance roster tool.

Google Classroom has become one of the darlings of the teaching world that has come out of this crisis. Its shallow learning curve and attractive UI made it an obvious choice for most educators.

Well…not directly in the Google Classroom platform, yet.
This tutorial runs through the basics of uploading grades from Google Sheets into Google Classroom using Google Apps Script with the Classroom API.
