It has been 8 months since my girl and I have been going out. She has not come out as lesbian to her family. I barely get to see her, only at work or if I skip a day of school. What should I do?

I know it's a really hard situation to be in. You should discuss it openly, so that you can express your feelings and wishes, and she can express her worries. understanding each other better can help you find a compromise that works for both. For example, you can agree to be presented to her family as a friend. However, none of you should feel forced to do something that they can't bear, something too uncomfortable for you. If the situation won't change and you can't find a compromise, you can consider taking separate ways if this becomes unbearable to you.
