Assuming you mean defensive holding, the penalty is 10 yards from the basic spot and replay the down.

Note that if the ball is thrown, the "basic spot" is the line of scrimmage, so the 10 yards is enforced from the previous spot, regardless of whether or not the ball is caught. But if the QB tucks the ball and runs, the "basic spot" is the end of the run.

On the other hand, if you meant offensive holding and the hold occurs behind the basic spot, then the 10 yards are enforced from the spot of the foul.

Well for the first offense there is no penalty. It is just a warning. If their is a second infraction after the warning, that is when the team gets penalized....

Why doesnt the quarter end on a penalty in high school football?

If the penalty requires that a down be replayed, then that down is still part of the quarter that has just ended. Therefore, the period is extended by an untimed down, so that the down can be replayed before the next period begins.
