Full Time Virtual Begins Tues., Sept. 8
Sequoyah Parents, Faculty, Staff and Students
Starting Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Sequoyah High School will move all classes to full time virtual school days, until further notice. Sequoyah has completed their orientation phase with all grade levels and have developed virtual lesson plans to ensure every student continues to have opportunities to learn and grow academically, especially with parental support. Our community continues in a “red zone” meaning that we are at high risk for community spread of COVID-19. Because it is safer for social distancing and distance learning at this time, these online lessons and activities will primarily be delivered and communicated virtually through Blackboard, along with offline assignments, and with remote support from teachers. All students are to work from home on Blackboard during school hours for attendance requirements. School hours are 8:00 am until 3:25 pm.
To ensure all students have adequate access to nutritious meals, Sequoyah High School will offer:
Grab and Go Meals
Meals are offered in a drive-thru set up. The meal program is also offered for students of any school district and any child aged 18 and under to participate in. There are three locations meals can be picked up for a child.
Meals will be at these locations, Sequoyah High School Cafeteria in the north parking lot, Cherokee National Peace Pavilion on Water Street and East Keetoowah Street in Tahlequah and one stop in Stillwell which will be at Big-B South, 910 S. 2nd St. Stillwell, OK 74960. The drive thru will consist of breakfast and lunch needed for each student. Monday pick-up meals will have Tuesday meals and Wednesday will have Thursday and Friday meals.
The meals can be picked up by the student or parents. The meal bags will have instructions for safe storage.
ICTC students will still need to report to ICTC each day for their classes. ICTC does not have a virtual option at this time. Please stay safe. Wear a mask and social distance, so we keep each other, and our Cherokee elders safe from COVID.
The CDC also recommends the following best practices for students to protect themselves:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are
• Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
• Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
• Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
• Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
• Stay at home when you are sick.
• Practice social distancing, leaving at least six feet between
you and other people.
• Wear a cloth mask in public when you cannot social distance.
There is nothing more important to Sequoyah Schools than the safety and health of our students, our staff and their families. If you have any questions or additional concerns about this matter, you are welcome to contact Natalie Cloud, Principal at (918) 453-5400. You are valued by Sequoyah High School, and we are here to assist you.
