Bell Schedules

The normal instructional day begins with the 1st-period tardy bell at 8:35 AM and ends with the 7th-period dismissal bell at 3:50 PM.  Lunch periods are assigned according to the student's 4th-period class.  Most classes are 50 minutes in length.

On designated days, classes will be cut five minutes short to provide time for student assemblies or exams.  On those days, Paris High will operate a Pep Rally Bell Schedule.

Students will take semester exams at the conclusion of each academic semester.  Refer to the Semester Exams web page for a detailed schedule for those days.
