Muting Siri with the hardware switch is an easy setting to turn on, but it’s a bit buried and worded a little strange, so don’t be surprised if you overlooked it when wandering around in Settings.
Even I had no idea and I purposefully look for settings of this nature; also, why is this not the default setting? Seems like a no brainer. Another little known but necessary tip with regard to Siri is how to control her volume. The user actually has to call her up and then use the volume rocker to turn her up or down; use that and say goodbye to ridiculously loud and annoyingly conspicuous Siri. I’m not even sure why she has her own volume setting, to by honest.
Now, if only I could communicate with Siri without actually talking out loud.

There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
