there is a way very easy.

download squid from http://squid-cache.org
and setup it with the minimun rights.

then install squidguard from http://squidguard.org
in the squidguard site they have some readmes and howtos on how to setup squid to work with squidguard.

in the squidguard configuration you can disable your users to enter pornography, you can enable internet by user, and in different hours to each group, etc. etc. etc.

it's what you want to do.
I remember I did it with squid alone, but squidguard is tousend of times faster, believe me... and clearer to configure too.

U can try to do that from your firewall, make diffrent rules file for each time interval and use cron to start the good one when U want. If the are not many time intervals it's a good choice.
