    Did you go to school yesterday?
    No, I didn't. I was ill.

    Did you go to school yesterday?
    No, I didn't because I was ill.

    They're both perfectly acceptable. I would simply add a second comma in the second response.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
