This schedule can be modeled using a Schedule:Compact object. You would need to define the occupancy for all days. That is, define the occupancy for design days, weekends, holidays, etc.
The schedule above modeled in E+ looks like this: (The line that says Through:12/31 means that the same schedule is applied for the whole year. You can break the schedule for different months of an year if it is appropriate for your model.) You can look at an example file or I/O ref guide for details on how to model the ScheduleTypeLimits object for Fraction.
This schedule can then be applied to the People object. The occupancy schedule does not depend on how the occupancy is defined here. If you know the number of occupants for a thermal zone, it is best to model the occupancy using "People" as the Number of People Calculation Method. Sometimes, the occupancy information is available as occupant density (people/area or area/person) in which case, you can use the other options. Here is a thermal zone where the occupancy schedule above was applied:
