In our high schoolthe minor classes like art, phys ed, etc are blocked in half semesters; the major classes including language are whole year with periods of 43 minutes each.

The students are not required to take a lunch and many don't but after trying it for one year we went back to insisting on at least 6 free periods a week including the 5 for lunch. This year dd2 has 8 free periods as she picked up two bands and a choir but no art this time.
