    Is this a work or study or guard duty schedule -- or a schedule for celestial events? You need to give us some context.

    It's our schedule for day and night shifts. That's what I would use, but "of" can also be used.

    It's it's, not its. A contraction of "It is."

    The use of "shifts" tells people what is being talked about, but if you're talking to the workers themselves, who understand that you are talking about shifts, then you can omit it if you like.

    You can also say "It's our day and night schedule." You can also say "It's our schedule." :)
