Schedule

High Schools in the Northshore School District all follow the same standard weekly bell schedule.  The start and end times have been modified to accommodate the new 7 period schedule school days.  The regular day for the 2019-2020 school year starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 2:35 p.m.  Period 0 (which is optional) starts at 6:35 a.m.

On some days we are on a modified schedule.  If it is a modified schedule, the new schedule for that day will be posted on the school calendar on our website.  

Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays are regular 7 class period days where each period is 50 minutes long (3rd period has an extra 5 minutes for announcements, etc.)

Wednesdays and Thursdays are Block Days, with a smaller number of classes each day but class times are longer.  Period 0 meets for the standard amount of time of 50 minutes.

  • Wednesdays are Short Block Days with periods 2, 4, and 6.
  • Thursdays are Long Block Days with periods 1, 3, 5, and 7. 

On days where the district has declared a 2 hour start delay due to weather we will be following a slightly different schedule.   We also follow a modified schedule on days where we have Assemblies.


Lunch times are assigned by department, so depending on the day's schedule students might have "A" or "B" lunch.  See Lunch Schedules for more information.

Lunch Schedules

Which lunch do I have?

North Creek has 2 lunches and making sure the lunches have similar numbers of students is important so that all students have the time to eat and socialize with their friends.

Students will have either A Lunch or B Lunch depending on the lunch schedule.  The schedule is developed so that 1) both lunches have similar numbers of students, 2) departments can eat together to the extent possible, and 3) full academic buildings (1 & 2) can be dismissed for lunch and create alternate spaces for students to eat and hang out.   

Students may not change their classes in order to have a different lunch.  Definitive lunch schedules will be available on the 1st day of school.
