Licking R-VIII registration announced

On June 18, Gov. Parson announced that Missouri will fully reopen on June 16. Licking R-VIII School District plans to host Elementary Open House August 6 from 5:30-7 p.m. This is scheduled at an earlier time this year so that families can visit classrooms, discuss safety plans and partner with administrators to determine special circumstances that may arise. Incoming kindergarten students may turn in enrollment paperwork the evening of Open House or by appointment, by calling (573) 674-3211. Class lists will be posted on the elementary office doors August 3 for grades K-6. A school supplies list will be published in the newspaper in July.
High school registration is as follows:
• Seniors: Tuesday, August 4 (9-11 a.m.)
• Juniors: Tuesday, August 4 (1-3 p.m.)
• Sophomores: Wednesday, August 5 (9-11 a.m.)
• Freshmen: Wednesday, August 5 (1-3 p.m.)
• New students and those with schedule changes will register Thursday, August 6 (9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m.) or Friday, August 7 (9 a.m.-12 p.m.)
All schedule change requests need to be done by Friday, August 7 at noon. Seventh grade orientation will be announced at a later date. 
As a district, we have purchased hundreds of masks and gloves. We are adding 20 hand-sanitizing stations, and we have purchased gallons of hand sanitizer. We will make these items available for students and staff who desire them. Additionally, we have purchased handheld sanitizing misters which custodians will use nightly. We are assured that these misters will sanitize all touch surfaces and eliminate any COVID-19 particles along with other viruses/germs.
School is set to re-open Tuesday, August 25. We recognize that virtual learning from home has been a challenge for our families, and we thank parents for taking on the task. We are excited for our students to return so that we may assess the skills on which extra practice may be necessary and help students make progress towards graduation. If you have specific questions or concerns, please call (573) 674-2911, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
