We are scheduling senior portrait sessions Feb. 3 & 4 in the storm shelter. This will be for seniors who still have the $100 from the school available. We will be calling this week to schedule these. If we fill all slots on these 2 dates, we can add another day of sessions.
Sample pictures with details about “at school sessions” and available “outside of school sessions” are above. The order form with details about package options, pricing, etc., is below. Hard copies of samples and order forms are available at the front desk. You will be responsible for any cost above $100 for the package/session options you select.
Many COVID precautions will be in place for these sessions.
• We will schedule one senior at a time every 30 minutes from 8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
• Everyone will be tested for COVID-19, including the photographer and her staff.
• We will sanitize as needed between sessions.
• Everyone will wear a mask except students will remove mask while pictures are taken.
• Make sure you arrive 30 minutes early if you haven’t already tested for COVID-19 within a week of your scheduled session so you can be tested and make it to your session appointment on time.
Be sure to bring whatever wardrobe items you plan to wear and props you want in your portraits. Make arrangements ahead of time with coaches, sponsors, etc., if you want to borrow any uniforms or items for props.
“At school sessions” are included with the $100 that will be paid by SHS. If you also schedule an “outside of school session,” you will need to pay a $50 session fee.
Please direct questions about package options or other details related to senior portrait sessions to Stephanie Hair of Priceless Poses at 918-207-9150.
SHS seniors who already used the $100 from the school for Josten’s senior items may schedule some other time with Priceless Poses and will receive a discount for being SHS students, but will be responsible for all costs.

At Sequoyah, we have made every effort to allow for school safety and safe extra-curricular activities. We have been testing students weekly and found several students that were positive, but asymptomatic which has helped reduce the COVID spread among our communities.
We continually make decisions that are in the best interest for everyone at Sequoyah, as well as our Cherokee communities. Those decisions are based on science, facts and compassion.
Because we have a surge in COVID cases at this time, we have notified OSSAA that Sequoyah will not participate in season basketball.
We have worked tirelessly to allow student athletes to socially interact through practice, but do not feel it is safe for our students to play other students, gathered in large crowds.
Our hospital and clinics are strained. We have implemented our “surge plan” due to the ICU beds being full.
While students may not be as harshly impacted by the virus, the families and communities they go home to, are.
Students or families with concern can reach out to our superintendent, Mr. Corey Bunch at 918-453-5000. Mr. Crittenden and Mrs. Cloud will be in the office Monday-Wednesday (7:45 am-3:45 pm) to assist families with any needs.
Another Zoom presentation about letterman jackets will be held tomorrow, Thurs., Dec. 17, at 11:30 AM. Unfortunately, there were technical issues with the one scheduled for last Fri.
The link for the 12/17 SSR Zoom is https://zoom.us/j/91015348137?pwd=V1hid3p4UTJmT0VKYlZTbkZnY1lNZz09.
As a precaution to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have not scheduled for SSR Jackets of Oklahoma to come to our campus to take letterman jacket and patch orders.
Our SSR sales representative is Sherwood Taylor. His contact information and some basic information about ordering jackets and/or patches is below. You are not required to participate in a Zoom presentation to place an order, but you will find the information helpful. The SSR website (SSROklahoma.com) has a video on sizing.

Important Student Forms:
Covid-19 testing each day occurs from 7:45 am-8:15 am. If a student arrives after that time, they will have to wait in the lobby until the next testing time at 11:30 am. All testing occurs in the Old Gym. Once you have completed and turned in a consent form- there is no need to complete another one for COVID testing only.
Flu shots will also be offered Monday-Thursday next week from 7:45 am- 8:30 am in the Old Gym. Parents/guardians must fill out both forms that were sent via email this week to students and parents. They are also available on our website. Thank you for your patience and willingness to work with us. We are all so happy to see our students this week!
Next week students that are in attendance at Sequoyah High School will be able to receive a flu shot from a Cherokee Nation public health employee. The consent form must be filled out by a parent or guardian, regardless of age. Flu tests will be administered right after Covid-19 testing in the morning from 7:45 am to 8:30 am only. Both forms below must be completed before testing will occur at SHS.
