Perhaps we need to know a little more...
a) Why "for example"?

b) What are these tasks ( or what do you call task)? Processes, programs? jobs?

c) You know our policy is more strict on what we expect from people posting in shell/programming... We expect to see something you started showing us you tried to do it, but cannot...

d) what does:
sendevent -E CHANGE_STATUS -s SUCCESS -J task1


So that we understand the difference between week and week-end

Only once all this is clear can we help you

man crontab first

For example, you need run the scrip on weekday and have one hour gap between three tasks.

0 10 * * 1,2,3,4,5 sendevent -E CHANGE_STATUS -s SUCCESS -J task1
0 11 * * 1,2,3,4,5 sendevent -E CHANGE_STATUS -s SUCCESS -J task2
0 12 * * 1,2,3,4,5 sendevent -E CHANGE_STATUS -s SUCCESS -J task3

run on weekend
0 10 * * 6,7 task1;task2;task3
