Douglas High School utilizes a traditional bell schedule Monday-Thursday. Each class is 50 minutes with our school day starting at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 3:31 p.m. We also have an Intervention/Extension (I/E) period for 50 minutes each day (Monday-Thursday). Intervention and/or Extension is designed to provide each student with the help they need in order to achieve high levels of learning.
On Friday's, we utilize an early release schedule. Our last class on Friday will dismiss at 1:28 p.m. A bus is provided to students who need transportation home at 1:28 p.m.
At times, Douglas High School utilizes an early out schedule. This schedule has been designed for staff development purposes, as well as, inclement weather. A few days each year we dismiss students early so that we may work with our staff. At times, it also becomes necessary to release students early due to weather related issues. This schedule releases students at 1:28 p.m.
Also, due to inclement weather we have may need to utilize a late start schedule. Classes will begin at 10:00 a.m. on late start days.
