  • Attention New Students:


    New students to the Waynesville R-VI School District may enroll online at

    Waynesville Schools Enrollment Page


    New students may pre-register for the 2017-18 school year by following the steps on the webpage.


    All children from the same family should register under one login account.


    This new online enrollment application saves time and paperwork, but it does not completely replace the need to go to the building to complete the registration process.  After completing the online enrolling application, the student’s birth certificate (kindergarten and 1st grade), immunization record and previous school records, along with all other required documents/records for enrollment, as stated on the District Enrollment Information Brochure, will need to be taken to the school by the parent/guardian to complete the enrollment process.  When you provide the needed documents to the school, make the school aware you have completed the enrollment application online.


    If your student is currently enrolled in the district and will be returning in the fall, your child will automatically be enrolled for the next school year.

  • Transportation Changes

    The safety of every student is extremely important to us. For this reason, your child will be sent home via the method listed on his/her transportation form. We realize plans sometimes change. If you need to make a transportation change, please do so by either sending a handwritten and signed note to school with your child or by filling out a form in the office in person prior to 3:00 p.m. We are unable to accept phone calls, emails, texts or any other digital form of communication in a non-emergency situation.

    If someone other than a parent/guardian will be picking up your child, we must have a note, even if that person is on your Emergency Contact List. Again, the note can be sent in with your child or completed in person in the office prior to 3:00 p.m.

    Thank you for your understanding and assistance in keeping our students safe.
