Welcome to Waynesville High School, a proud member of the Waynesville R-VI School District serving the communities of Waynesville, St. Robert, and Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. WHS is the first in Missouri to implement a college readiness program from the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI), thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Department of Defense Educational Authority (DoDEA). NMSI is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 to help improve education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Graduation is scheduled to be held in Tiger Stadium at 7:30 p.m. on June 19. In case there is rain or inclement weather that day, an alternative plan has been developed to ensure our students get to have a ceremony on the 19th. In order to accommodate the number of graduates and guests, we will have to divide the class and host 3 ceremonies due to social distancing and the pandemic. Although this would not be ideal, we hope that parents and guests understand the number one goal is to provide our seniors with a graduation ceremony. With everything else these seniors have endured, we felt it was important for the graduates to walk with their chosen partner. So, instead of dividing up the ceremonies by alphabet we instead divided them up so graduates would get to walk with their partner. We understand that this may mean one of your friends graduates at a different time and you will not see a friend graduate and for that I am truly sorry, but we cannot accommodate all of those things.
Thank you and hope for beautiful weather,

For practice ALL graduates should plan on reporting at the regular practice time at 10:00 am June 19 at the stadium. Depending on weather you may be directed to a different location at that time. Graduates will receive their guest tickets at practice, along with their gown, cap and mask.
Graduates should plan on arriving 1 hour before their assigned graduation ceremony and reporting to the front doors of the building by the Tiger statue. You will then be put into assigned rooms. Please make sure you have your cap, gown, and mask from graduation practice. Students who do not attend graduation practice will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.
GRADUATION CEREMONIES FOR PARENTS
In the event of inclement weather, parents/guests will still be required to show their graduation ticket to enter the parking lot and school security will direct you to a parking area. You are required to stay in your car until a school security officer directs you to go to the building to prevent large crowds gathering at the doors. Every parent or guests (including children) will be required to present a ticket in order to enter the graduation ceremony.
All guests are required to wear a mask and socially distance, but will be allowed to remove their mask once they are in their seats.
Once the ceremony is over we ask you wear your mask as you are ushered out of the gym. Please note that the custodial staff will begin cleaning immediately following the recessional of the graduates as we prepare for the next ceremony. Groups congregating after the ceremony will not be allowed and we ask that you go directly to your car so we can prepare for the next ceremony.

The Waynesville R-VI School District now offers MySchoolBucks, a convenient online service that allows you to securely pay for your student’s meals online using your credit/debit card or electronic check.
Sign up now! Registering for your account is easy, go to MySchoolBucks. 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 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.
