Hello Sequoyah High School,
This email is in regards to Distance Learning. First, let’s address taking attendance. If you have access to your student portal (where you check your grades), it will be easy. Log into your student portal to check your grades, a question prompt will appear, “Are you present?” You click the “Yes or Present Button.” You will need to do this for all your classes every day we have school (we are out on Friday, April 10th and Monday, April 13th for Easter). The nice thing is you can take attendance all at once, for all your classes, during anytime that day. I would take attendance at the same time every day to make it a habit. It is important.
The teachers have worked very hard to insure that you are good to go with lessons for the upcoming weeks. We are trying to make this as stress free as possible, so if you have questions please do not hesitate to reach out to your teachers or me. You can access your work via the link below.
Make sure that you select the grade level you are in and then look for your name. Your classes should be in your folder. Download the folder to your laptop. When you are finished with an assignment, send it to your teacher. If your teacher has reached out to you with a different website like Get More Math, Newsela, or Edmodo, you follow the directions given to you by them.
Again, please contact someone if you have questions.

State Basketball Tournament
March 26, 2020—1:30 p.m.—On March 25, the State Superintendent announced that all public schools would remain closed until the end of the academic year for each respective public school. The academic year for schools will end between May 8 and May 15.
In conjunction with this decision the OSSAA Board voted unanimously, at the March 26, 2020 Teleconference Board Meeting, to cancel the State Basketball Tournament for Classes 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A; additionally, all spring activities have been cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
This is an unprecedented situation, resulting in heartbreaking cancellations and adjustments. Thank you for all that each of you do for our students – in the good times and in the more challenging times like these.
Sequoyah girls AND boys qualified for state for the 8th consecutive year. All Sequoyah games will be at the Big House (Jim Norick Arena, OKC State Fairgrounds, intersection of I-40 and I-44) except boys will play at Oklahoma City University (2501 N. Blackwelder Ave.) Thursday.
