    school tasks

    If I want to say that I cannot go somewhere and attend something because I have to be at school, or do homework, or do something related to my school, can I say that I cannot go to that place because of my school duties or is there some better (common) phrase that describes all your school obligations and tasks (attendance, homework...)?

    Re: school tasks

    If the work is in a class or classes, just say you have school.
    If the work is outside school (like homework), just say you have school work.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
