Welcome! to Thayer Elementary School, a proud member of the Waynesville R-VI School District serving the communities of Waynesville, St. Robert and Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
Thayer Elementary Arrival and Dismissal Procedures 2021-2022
The Waynesville School District is now utilizing KIDAccount to ensure the utmost safety during dismissal for all of our students. KIDaccount provides daily, 100% accountability for every student. Using this system will allow us to ensure the safe dismissal of each and every child in our care. Switching to this system means there will be changes in our dismissal procedures. Each child will have two cards that contain their name and a barcode. If for some reason you do not have your card or one of your designated emergency contacts is picking up your child, ID will be checked before releasing the child to them.
Early Dismissal/Check out
If your student needs to be checked out early, please come to the office to check them out.
END OF THE DAY DISMISSAL
We ask that students have ONE (1) permanent form of transportation to their after school destination.
If a student’s transportation method will be different from the normal mode of transportation, the parent must send a note or come into the office in person to notify the school of this change. Without a note, students will be sent home via their normal mode of transportation. Changes must be made prior to 2:00 p.m. on the day of the change.
3:20 pm – First Bell - WALKERS
3:23 pm - Second Bell - CAR RIDERS
3:25 pm – Third Bell - BUS RIDERS
