Unless you have a pass for sports or something.
In an American movie, a high school girl testifies in court (the very first lines in the movie):
-We go back to our homeroom for dismissal. Unless you have a pass for sports or something.
-Is that what you did on the day in question?
-No. Mr. Gettys asked me to stay after class.
Could you explain to me what a "pass for sports" means, please?
A hall (way) pass ( in American English ) gives the student permission to be outside the classroom during school hours. You can have a pass to the restroom, counselor's office, to get water, to go to another classroom, etc.
