    be late for / to

    1. Mandy was late to school yesterday.
    2. Mandy was late for school yesterday.

    Q: 1. Which one is correct, be late for or be late to?
    2. Any difference between these two?

    Thank you.

    Re: be late for / to

    I consider 'was late for' and 'came late to' correct, but I am not a teacher.
