    There was too much repetition in your sentences, especially in the third.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    So do we say children also have their day off or two days off from school?

    Tim didn't go to school because he has a day off today. Tim will have two days off at the weekend.
