Six-Day Cycle/4 Period Day

Donegal High School operates on a six-day scheduling cycle.  Each day is numbered 1 through 6 and classes will be identified as such on the student schedules.  This allows for more continuity in class meetings.  Holidays normally force students to miss some classes that are scheduled on Fridays, Mondays, etc. Using the numbers and a six-day cycle allows us to keep this situation to a minimum and schedule more efficiently those classes that do not meet every day.  Donegal High School also primarily schedules classes on a block schedule.  A class meets during periods 1 thru 4 is 81 minutes in length, and all students will be assigned a 30-minute Tribe Time at the beginning of the instructional day.  Students must be fully scheduled for the eight periods during the year.
