PARENT RE-ENTRY SURVEY
Please help us plan for your child by completing the survey, as well as the survey you will receive from the district.  We need to know if you plan for your child to return to Face to Face learning or if they will remain in the virtual environment.  Thank you in advance for completing the survey and for helping us to plan.

Por favor ayúdenos a planear el regreso de su hijo a la escuela completando esta encuesta, así como la encuesta que recibirá del distrito. Necesitamos saber si planea que su hijo regrese a la escuela para tomar clases en persona (en la escuela) o si permanecerá en el ambiente de aprendizaje virtual (en línea en su casa). Gracias de antemano por completar la encuesta y por ayudarnos a planear el regreso de los alumnos a la escuela.

PARENTS PLEASE FILL OUT THE RE-ENTRY SURVEY

Dear Sequoyah MS Family & Friends,

Welcome to Sequoyah Middle School, where our student's success, leads to higher education, work, and life-long learning. This year's theme, "Unity through Diversity" embodies our commitment to social equity, cultural identity and community/parental engagement.  Despite the challenges we may face in a virtual learning environment, we will provide the support and encouragement our students need, to have a great 2020-2021 school year. Please assist us by having your student(s) present each and every day, on time in our online platforms ready to learn.  Our virtual instructional day schedules are posted by grade level and your student's class schedules are shared in Infinite Campus. Thank you for your continued support.

Best Regards,
Sedrick Anthony
