Collinsville ISD closes due to high number of students out sick

COLLINSVILLE, TX -- Another Texoma school district is cancelling class after dozens of students stay home sick.

Collinsville ISD Superintendent Tim Wright says around 20% of the district's 542 students are absent and there will be no school Thursday and Friday.

Wright says district staff will use the two days to sanitize buildings and school buses.

Collinsville joins the growing list of schools shutting down for the flu. In our area, Roff Public Schools in Pontotoc County and Paris Chisum ISD both closed for part of this week.
