Class Period Time Schedules

Common Hour

Common Hour, a free period in the middle of the day, was established to allow a time when all students would have the same hour free so that they may take part in student activities and so that outside speakers could be invited to speak to the entire student body. Students may also use the Common Hour to meet with advisors or to get help from teachers.

Snow Days

In the event of inclement weather, South Hills may announce a 2- or 3-hour delay. Students should follow the appropriate adjusted class time period schedule.
