Replace 'as' with 'because'.
As conjunctions, 'Because', 'As', 'For', 'Since' specify reasons in the following manner:
1) 'Because' shows the strongest reason.
2) 'Since' shows normally strong reason.
3) 'As/For' shows the weakest cause.
The correct sentence should be: I could not go to school because I was seriously ill. (A Strong case)
