HHS Students and Staff, As some of you may have heard, four students from Collinsville and Triad were involved in a tragic accident yesterday.

Our thought and prayers go out to the families. From the TMS Principal: TMS Parents/Guardians, I hope that you and your families were all able to stay warm and safe during the recent winter storm our region experienced. As you may have heard, four teenage girls (2 from Triad and 2 from Collinsville) were involved in a tragic, fatal atv accident yesterday. The two Triad Middle School students are doing fine physically, but are understandably struggling with the loss of one of their close friends, while worrying about the injuries sustained to another. I would like to encourage all Triad Middle School students and staff members to join Collinsville Middle School in wearing blue tomorrow (Wednesday, December 18th) when we return to school as a sign of support for the students involved in this unfortunate accident. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers during such a difficult time. We will have additional counselors available tomorrow for any students who need their support.
