Bell Schedules

Please note, this Bell Schedule is currently suspended, as we will now follow the Distance Learning Bell Schedule. The current bell schedule can be found by clicking here. Santa Ynez High School operates on an alternating block schedule. With the exception of period 7 which meets every Tuesday through Friday for 60 minutes, students attend their 100-minute odd period classes (1, 3 & 5) on one day and their 100-minute even period classes (2, 4 & 6) the next. These odd-even days alternate throughout the year.
Regular Schedule Period 7 meets Tuesdays through Fridays only. All students are dismissed at 2:00 PM on Mondays.
