  • 2015 Waynesville High School Homecoming Football Game Will Not Be Televised on Channel 12


    The 2015 Waynesville High School Homecoming football game will not be televised on Channel 12 or streamed online. The game is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 2, with a 7 p.m. kickoff.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances Tim Wallace, the Waynesville R-VI School District video production instructor and district programmer, will be unable to broadcast the game.

    “My apologies to all of our fans and the community for not being able to televise Friday’s homecoming game,” Wallace says. “My wife has been experiencing medical problems and has been in the hospital since Sept. 17 and will be undergoing another surgical procedure on Friday, Oct. 2. I hope everyone understands that I need to be with my wife at this time.”

    Tickets for the homecoming game are available for purchase at the gate and senior citizens age 60 and older with an athletic pass are admitted free of charge. The next televised football game is scheduled for Oct. 16 as the Waynesville Tigers host the Kickapoo Chiefs.

Welcome to the Waynesville R-VI School District, serving the communities of Waynesville, St. Robert and Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

From pre-school for children with special needs and developmental concerns to dual credit and AP college courses at the high school, Waynesville Schools offer a variety of programs to meet the academic needs of students at all levels. As a result, our students routinely perform above average on state and national tests.

Waynesville teachers embrace the Professional Learning Community model and classes begin late each Wednesday to allow teachers to collaborate on best practices.    

Beyond their common core subject material and 21st century skills, students learn to apply school-wide positive behavior support strategies, model character words and embrace good habits for successful daily living. Understanding the value of individual responsibility is emphasized, along with service to others.

Parents also are asked to maintain high expectations for their children, and none is more important than attendance. Every healthy child should be at school every day. To help your family plan upcoming vacations and holidays, the 2014-15 School Year  is here.
