This is a tough call between A and D.

I`m selecting (A) for brevity.

Agree with A.
"it" correctly refers to "schedule".

I'll go with A: B omits "that" after "said", replaces "must" with "had to".
C is off the mark changing the meaning. D is vtoo wordy repeating "schedule". In E "everyone had been" can't refer to a forard-lookng schedule.

A is concise. But is it "is assigned" or "was assigned"??
