What if I want to say that she was granted a permission to not go to school

Hi,

What if I want to say that she was granted a permission to not go to school

someone who seems a native English speaker made that sentence.

1. Is it also OK to say ~~~ greanted a permission not to go to school? This version is usually considered better. We usually try to keep the infinitive (eg 'to go') from being interrupted by another word.

Don't say 'a permission', just say 'permission'. It's uncountable.
