Waynesville R-VI Students to Participate in Eclipse Event
All Waynesville R-VI students and teachers will be issued NASA-certified glasses for the total eclipse of the sun event on Aug. 21.
“This is a rare and exciting occurrence and also an outstanding educational opportunity for our students,” said Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent. “We have been planning for this for several months and we are looking forward to having our students witness this event. Our teachers will engage students in effective educational activities that promote learning related to the total eclipse, but as always, safety will be our first priority.”
The approximate time line for the near total eclipse is as follows:
11:45 a.m. Partial eclipse will begin
1:15 p.m. Peak time
2:45 p.m. Eclipse ends
Parents will need to complete a permission slip for students to be allowed to view the event. Students without a permission slip will stay inside during the eclipse and view the eclipse on a TV, Smart Board, and/or projector via NASA live streaming.
Teachers will have students practice putting on and taking off their eclipse glasses safely prior to the eclipse. Permission forms will be sent home after school begins. Additional information will be sent home to parents. Please feel free to contact your child’s school with any additional questions.
ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS:
New students to the Waynesville R-VI School District may enroll online at https://www.waynesville.k12.mo.us/site/Default.aspx?PageID=7016 or by clicking on the “Online Enrollment” link across the top of the district’s main webpage at www.waynesville.k12.mo.us.
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.
Paying for your child's school meals

- And More…
Sign up now! Registering for your account is easy, go to https://www.MySchoolBucks.com. Create a secure account and never worry again about sending cash or checks with your student(s) to school again!
MySchoolBucks – the Waynesville R-VI School District’s new online meal payment system – is free to use to look up a student’s balances/transaction history/etc.; however, a $2 payment processing fee is charged for making an online payment with MySchoolBucks.
In the former system, a .29 cents fee plus 2.9% of the amount of the transaction was charged. MySchoolBucks charges a flat $2.00 fee, regardless of the amount. Parents may avoid paying the fee by sending in a check to their student’s school.
Debit and credit card companies charge a payment processing fee for payments made online, but many businesses absorb that cost. Waynesville R-VI serves about 1 million meals annually and spends about $1 million more than it receives in income from students and commodities without the additional payment processing fee.
