Miller County R-III Families, 

After conferring with our local health officials, representatives from the department of education and the ever-growing concerns of our community regarding the COVID-19 virus, the Miller County R-III School District has determined it necessary to enact a long-term closure of the school. 

At the conclusion of school on Wednesday, March 18th, Tuscumbia Schools will be closed until Monday, April 6th. During this time, our district staff will continue to engage with students through a variety of distant learning opportunities. 

We understand that this decision will have an unfortunate impact on many of our families and we will do all that we can to help ease this burden. It is also important to follow recommendations of social distancing and proper hygiene practice during this challenging time.

On behalf of the  230 students and 50 staff members, welcome to Tuscumbia Schools where providing a quality education is our primary goal. Tuscumbia is proud of our supportive community, excellent resources and facilities, a dedicated Board and leadership team, with outstanding teachers and support staff. Combined, these qualities promote a nurturing, caring climate that maximizes student achievement, and has resulted in the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education designating the Miller County R-III School District as being "Accredited with Distinction."

The Miller County R-III School District is a rural district of approximately 72 square miles lying entirely in Miller County. The school is located in the town of Tuscumbia, which is the county seat of Miller County.

Farming is the main industry of the area. Cattle, turkey and hog farms are predominate with some row crop farming done along the Osage River. Many of the district's residents supplement the farm income with jobs in neighboring communities of Jefferson City, Eldon and Lake of the Ozarks.
