USKNT  =  STUNK,  LOHYL  =  HOLLY,  SINVAH  =  VANISH,  GOBNIX  =  BOXING   —   Giving us:  KOYHO

Clue/Question:  You can’t play this in school.

Answer:  HOOKY

(When I went to high school, I lettered in Hooky!  Those were the days, my friends.  Actually, I didn’t play that much hooky, because it was much more fun to go to school . . . and skip class.  I spent a lot of time in both the cafeteria and the gym, when I should have been in class.

Great job on the jumbled clue words!  It looks like both “holly” and “boxing” are new to the ralis95 clue word database.  It seems like “boxing” should be an old standard, but ya just never know!  The answer letter layout about as tough as you could expect . . . for a five letter word.  Nice little send up to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
