Automatically remove users from Canvas

We are currently using this C# script to upload users into our Canvas instance. 

 

canvas/sis/sis_import_standard/CSharpCanvasSISPublish at master · unsupported/canvas · GitHub 

 

This script does what we need. However, it does not remove students who are not in that instance or mark them as inactive so I have teachers sending me emails to remove students that may have moved classes out of the district. As you can imagine, in a district with around 6,000 students, this get's a bit tedious. I would normally do a batch update but since we are halfway through the semester I can't erase gradebook data and anything else like that. 

 

Is there a way to remove any students who do not appear to be in the CSV we are importing with a script of some kind?
