Out for school? Out for work?
Hi. Just wondering if you ever say "out for school" or "out for work" instead of "gone to school" or "gone to work"? e.g.) I'm going shopping tomorrow while my children are out for school. If not, any suggestions for a better sentence? Thank you.
I have never heard anyone say "out for school." I would just write:
I am going shopping tomorrow while my children are at school.
When using the phrase "gone to school," I would use after instead of while.
I am going shopping tomorrow after my children have gone to school.
