Dear Sequoyah Family:
We want to make sure that all Sequoyah parents and students have information about the start of school.
Students will report to school beginning at 7:50 am on Monday, August 24, 2020. The first bell rings at 8:05 am. School ends at 3:20 pm.
Buses will run, however, new routes will be in place to accommodate staggered class schedules. Please contact the transportation department for information at (918)772-4169.
The only student drop off location will be in front of the Sequoyah statue. All students must enter the main building wearing a mask, or remain outside until we provide a mask. Students will then be screened and then may report to class or the cafeteria.
Mondays- Freshmen only
Tuesdays- Sophomores only
Wednesdays- Juniors only
Thursdays- Seniors only
Fridays- all students will be Virtual
This schedule will be in place until further notice. This schedule is subject to change at any time. Please make sure that the school has current contact information on your student. We want to keep you informed during this difficult time.
The first week of school, August 24-28 we will make sure all students receive devices and connectivity for virtual learning. Students will be provided with all necessary tools on how to access their learning information online.
Dorm students have a tentative report date of August 24. We will send out more information as we have it, and it is always subject to change as we gather information and resources. A more strategic return to school plan will be available soon.
Thank you for all you do to make Sequoyah High School the BEST!

The Place Where They Play
A map has been posted with entrance and exit spots for graduates. We will have masks for all students that need one. All staff members working the event will also wear a mask.
There are two staging areas for students inside the gym to make adhere to all safety expectations as well as maintaining the schedule of the program. Staging area number one is the recreation room. Staging area number two is the hallway going into the gym on the east side of the gym.
Once students make it to the stage area, students will hand their name card to the class president, pick up their diploma take a photo on stage. Students will exit the stage and take another photo with a backdrop. Students will then exit the building on the west side.
Congratulations to the Sequoyah High School graduating class of 2020. You have persevered and overcome many obstacles this school year that will set your future endeavors on a positive trajectory to accomplish many things in your lives. We salute you today and always!
The 2020 school year is about to begin, and it looks like it will be a great year! Events will be posted on the school's Facebook page, our new website, and Twitter. Please feel free to contact the school with any questions.
Due to ACT testing sites near us being closed and those students being re-directed to our testing site, we need to cancel the July 18th testing date.
We apologize for the inconvenience, however keeping our students safe at Sequoyah High School is our priority.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the school's principal, Mrs. Cloud.
With COVID-19 cases increasing across the state and country, and public health experts predicting positive case numbers to continue to rise, an event such as PROM needs careful examination in order to maintain that safe student to student proximity. Sequoyah High School has made a decision, after much consideration to cancel the SHS prom for 2020 in order to protect our students, faculty and staff.
We would however, like to celebrate this event “virtually”. If students would like to document their prom attire through pictures, we would love to post them on our social media page. Please email pictures to Natalie Cloud, Principal at Sequoyah High School at firstname.lastname@example.org before July 20, 2020.
Pertinent information concerning Graduation will be posted soon. The date for the 2020 Graduation at Sequoyah High School is July 31. A plan is currently being designed based on current CDC guidelines and social distancing, while still allowing students to be recognized.
