Silex R-1 Facilities Closure Update

It has been determined that all Silex R-I School District facilities will remain closed until further notice with a target date for reopening of July 1st. If certain state and local restrictions are lifted prior to the July 1st target date, consideration of reopening will be made at that time. 

With that comes the unfortunate cancellation of prom. While we understand the disappointment that comes with this decision, the health and safety of our students and community is, and always will be, our first priority. 

Summer school has also been cancelled for grades K-8. Credit recovery for high school students will still be available but will be done virtually. Mrs. Heitgerd will be contacting students regarding credit recovery summer school once semester grades have been posted. 

All student athletes please be on the lookout for information from your coaches for more information regarding practices and workouts. 

Pickups for student belongings will continue as scheduled for next week. We ask that you please follow the safety guidelines that have been put in place. Those guidelines can be found on the Silex School District Facebook page. 

Any student athlete who still has a school uniform will need to bring it to Coach Henke during your scheduled pickup time next week. 

As always, we thank you for your continued support and understanding as we make our way through these unprecedented times. Our students safety is our #1 priority and we will continue to work towards our goal of returning students to campus as soon as possible.
