    It depends on my class but
    ⓐI wont be late too long.
    ⓑI wont be too late.

    Re: I wont be late too long.

    A: I can be there 6th of JAN at around 1PM.
    I might be (there) a bit late.
    I may be (there) a bit late. Both of these are fine, 'there' is optional.
    It depends on my class but
    I wont be too late. This is correct.

    So, would you please wait for me for a while if I am late? This is correct.

    I will be there to meet you on the 6th of January around 1pm. I may be a little late, depending on when my class finishes, but not by much. Please wait a little while for me.
