Regular Bell Schedules
Bell Schedule Times
The school day is 7:25am-1:55pm. Students take eight classes. Odd-numbered classes (periods 1, 3, 5, 7) meet on "Red" days, and even-numbered classes (periods 2, 4, 6, 8) meet on "Gold" days. Red and gold classes meet on alternating days whenever school is held as normal. On Tuesdays and Fridays, an advisory period is inserted into the day, shortening each class by a few minutes.
Occasionally TJ holds 45-minute or 60-minute assemblies. Bell times are adjusted accordingly as follows: There will be several Early Release days in the 2016-2017 calendar for the purpose of Teacher PLC/Collaboration time, with embedded Professional Development. On those days Thomas Jefferson will end the school day at 12:25 pm.
