    Smile "Were you at school yesterday?

    "Were you at school yesterday?
    Does it mean " took a lesson in the school" or "just went to the school"?

    Thanks in advance.

    It means "took a lesson".

    Saying 'Were you at the school yesterday?' or 'Did you go to the school yesterday?' strongly suggests "just went to the school".
    Using "the" denotes "the school" as a place.
