Dear Silex R-1 School District Families:

The Lincoln County Health Department has issued a county wide mask mandate that will go into effect on Friday, December 11. The Silex R-I School District supports the health department’s decision and supports them in their efforts of keeping our students, staff, and community safe.

In accordance with the Lincoln County “Covid Stops With Me” order, everyone age 10 and over will be required to wear masks while in the building at all events.  We ask for your cooperation as we do everything we can to continue to hold events on campus and allow visitors in our buildings and spectators at school events.  

As you know, we have seen a recent spike in Covid-related illnesses within our school and community.  Please continue to monitor yourself for Covid-related symptoms, wash your hands, social distance yourself from others, and wear a mask.  

We appreciate your support as we continue our goal of in-person learning for our students. For more information regarding the “Covid Stops With Me” order, you may click on the link below.
