Skip classes?

I am in college and I am in a long distance relationship. My boyfriend is asking me to skip two classes to see him for the full day on Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving. 
I have never skipped classes before, because that isn't how I was raised. 
I don't know why he is making a big deal, since my classes end at 2 and I can see him at 3 in the evening. 
What do y'all think about this?
