“On behalf of Collinsville Community School District #10, I am profoundly saddened by the loss of Alexis Dimarco, a student at Collinsville Middle School. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Alexis’ family and friends during this difficult time.
The district’s Help and Response Team (H.A.R.T.) of specially trained staff will be available for students and faculty at Collinsville Middle School tomorrow, and as necessary in the immediate future, to support them through the grieving process.
We are asking everyone to wear blue – Alexis’ favorite color – on Wednesday, December 18. Furthermore, KAHOKstrong is accepting donations to assist the family.
Our thoughts and continued prayers are with the family.”
