    Cleaning out lockers and desks

    Waynesville R-VI employees will clean out students' desks and/or lockers and place everything into a bag with the student's name on the bag.  At the same time that a parent is returning (dropping off) the school-issued items (such as Chromebooks, textbooks, uniforms, etc.), the bag containing a child's personal items will be given to the parent. 

    Each school has a specific assigned day, times and procedures for parents to drop off school-issued items. Please click on the link for each school for more information.

     Summer School

    Virtual summer school will be offered June 1-26 in the Waynesville R-VI School District for students entering grades 1-12. Seated summer school for students entering grades K-12 will be held July 20-31, providing COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. Students may attend either or both sessions. Info and registration forms are at https://www.waynesville.k12.mo.us/Domain/1831.

    Registrations are due by 9 a.m. Friday, May 15.

    NOTE:  Please note that if you registered your child for summer school using the original paper-based summer school forms for grades K-6 that were sent out prior to spring break, your child is NOT registered for summer school as our summer school programs have been revamped due to COVID-19. You will need to go online and register your child for either the June virtual summer school session and/or the seated session in July if you want your child to participate in summer school.  

    Late registrations will not be accepted for June virtual summer school. Registrations for the July seated session may be accepted on a space available basis after May 15. For summer school, students attend the grade they will be promoted to, so if you currently have a 3rd grader who will be going to 4th grade during the 2020-21 school year, your child will attend 4th grade during summer school.

    West Point grads

    Record 5 WHS students to graduate West Point this year

    A record five former Waynesville High School students will graduate from the U.S. Military Academy (West Point) on June 13, 2020.

    Having five former WHS students graduate in a single West Point class is believed to be a school record. The five are Hunter Ball, Ashley Wolf, Jon Lowe, Robert Osborn and Jason Brodeur.

    In recognition of their upcoming graduation, Waynesville Mayor Luge Hardman presented a coin and letter to Lowe on May 11. Lowe will deliver coins and letters from Hardman to the other four upon their return to West Point.

    Participating in the presentation and pictured are Dr. Brian Henry, Waynesville R-VI superintendent, David Lowe, Jon Lowe, Kimberly Lowe and Waynesville Mayor Luge Hardman.
