Dear Parents,

It has been a very busy 1st 9 weeks at Sequoyah High School.  Our Seniors attended the Rogers State College Fair on September 17th.  The seniors were able to visit with college recruiters from across the state and gather information for those schools.  The Sequoyah FFA program participated in the Rogers County and Tulsa State Fair bringing home numerous awards for our FFA program and those students.

Seniors there are several important things that you need to make sure that are taken care of ASAP.  Senior quotes deadline is February 3rd so make sure that you get your quote handed in on time. Deadline for Senior ads is March 13th so make sure you get this information to your parents so they can get your senior ad in the yearbook.  Seniors make sure to get your baby pictures to Ms. McGlothlin so that she can get the senior video completed on time. Also Seniors there are 4 more dates available for the ACT test those dates being February 8th, April 4th, June 13th, and July 18th.  If you need any additional information please contact Pam Self (High School Counselor), 918-341-0642. Seniors Panel retakes will be November 7th so make sure that you get your panel pick taken so that your senior picture will be in the yearbook. Parents there is a $15.00 dollar fee for the panel picture make the check out to Ruth Kelly.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to monitor your child’s grade and attendance through our student grade book system.  There is always a direct correlation between poor grades and poor attendance. Contact Jackie Francis our school Librarian at the high school to access your password.  If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance contacting a teacher call the High School (918)-341-0642

I would like to take this time to share with you something that will be happening statewide in all of Oklahoma’s public schools.  The Oklahoma State Department of Education is revamping its accountability system, specifically with CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM.  This indicator will affect the school’s A-F Report Card fairly dramatically.  CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM is defined as missing 10% or more of the school year and will be calculated based on students enrolled on or before January 2nd.  For example if the school year is 180 days, the school will be docked points if a student is absent more than 18 days (10%) that year for any reason.  CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM  is worth 10 points (11%) of the A-F report Card.  Schools will receive scores based on the number of students that are enrolled that are not CHRONICALLY absent.  Although participation in school activities is not an absence, CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM generally will be measured on whether or not the student is present- regardless of whether the absence is excused or unexcused.  For the 2019-2020 school year, attendance will be monitored even more closely than in years past. Students may be subject to consequences for CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM and families may even be turned into Truancy court.  It is important that we as a school district and parents work together and be proactive about CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM.  Remember there is always a direct correlation between attendance and grades.

It’s never too early to start planning for the ACT test.  ACT National Testing Dates scheduled in which you must pay are:
