The Silex School Board voted last night to change the quarantine policy in the Return to School Plan. The quarantine policy is now:

Quarantining-We will continue the practice of contact tracing but students and staff will not be required to quarantine.

The district will conduct contact tracing and will notify all employees/students who were determined to be close contacts. The district will inform staff/students/parents if close contacts were determined and ask those close contacts to self monitor for signs and symptoms of Covid-19. Students and staff deemed to be close contacts will be allowed to self quarantine, but not required.
