This morning we became aware that a high school student, who is a minor, was potentially in possession of a firearm at a bus stop.
This type of information is taken very seriously. Without delay, we began an inquiry into the reported circumstances. The student was promptly apprehended and additional students were questioned by our School Resource Officer and District Security Director.
The matter was immediately turned over to the Collinsville Police Department for investigation.
We are very limited in what we can say about individual students and student discipline. Immediate action was taken to ensure the safety of our school community and authorities are handling the situation.
The school day was not interrupted and it was business as usual at CHS today. We are proud of the student body at Collinsville High School. The negative actions of a few individuals are in no way a reflection of our nearly 2,000 hard-working, dedicated students.
