to play hooky from school/class to skip school/class
Let's play hooky and go skiing Friday. Tomorrow I plan to play hooky from school and go fishing. Yesterday I skipped third period and chatted with my friends. Do you want to skip our 10 o'clock class and have some coffee?
I'd just like to put in my twopence worth, but then just for participation´s sake: Cut class - It means to not go to class. Another explanation is, not appearing or showing up class. (Urban Dictionary).
