    Hello.
    Can I say "She is always late to school."?
    Or should I say "She is always late for school."?
    Thank you.

    I suggest "She is always late for school". You can use "She is always late to school" to express "She is always late getting to school", but it's better to use "getting to school". That way, people will be sure what you mean.

    I am not sure that I understand what it means exactly "getting to school". Can she be not late for school but be late getting to school?
