Hi, Sree,

what does it mean Do you go to school today? - do you have a plan to go to school today or do you regularly go to school?


can we say Do you go to school today? - is it correct




This sounds weird and needs more context. If someone is questioning another, they might say, 'Do you have / go to school on Mondays?' The usage of 'today' makes the question sound unnatural. Of course, you can use the present progressive with 'today' here to ask about the addressee's plans.

Where is this from? It sounds very non-native and unnatural. 'I am not well' is a temporary case. It doesn't require the usage of the present simple -unless it is a permanent case.  I won't change your context, but I will modify the last part of it.

- Do you have to go to school? Yes, I have to go to school. However, I won't go / am not going (today) because I am not well.
