    NEW ENTRY PROCEDURES TO OUR SCHOOLS

     

    Waynesville R-VI schools will provide new entry procedures starting in the 2019-20 school year. Rather than waiting outside, parents will enter into the vestibule and then announce their presence to receive assistance and/or admittance to their child’s school.

    At Waynesville Sixth Grade Center, Waynesville Middle School, Waynesville High School, Waynesville Career Center, Williams Early Childhood and the elementary schools on Fort Leonard Wood – Partridge, Thayer and Wood – parents will enter the first set of doors, press the silver 2N box to be acknowledged, present their photo ID to the camera and state their purpose for their visit.

    At East Elementary and Freedom Elementary, parents will pilot a program that will allow them to scan their KidAccount card and have their child brought directly to them. At all other schools, parents will still present their ID for student pickup and their child will be called to the office for dismissal.
