    Teacher, is this sentence OK?

    I will not be able to attend your party next Friday as my out of town friends are visiting me.

    It's OK, but I would rephrase it a bit. "I will not be able ... as friends are visiting from out-of-town."

    I would hyphenate 'out-of-town' as shown or write '...as my friends from out of town are visiting me'.
