Silex R-I School District Families,

In response to the growing number of positive Covid cases in the Silex R-I School District, we will be releasing the total number of positive cases on the weekly basis rather than daily. Below are the positive cases for the week of 9/6-9/10

Silex High School: 0

The district has conducted contact tracing and has notified any individuals that were identified as close contacts with the individual that tested positive. We will continue to work closely with the LCHD and communicate with you if any other positive tests occur.

All cleaning protocols remain in place for the district as we remain committed to the safety and welfare of all students and staff. We appreciate your understanding and support as we work to safely provide a quality education for our students while remaining committed to keeping our staff and students safe.

As a reminder, should you or your child exhibit any symptoms associated with Covid-19, please stay home and contact the LCHD or your family healthcare provider.
