Fulton eighth grade student passes away

O’FALLON – An eighth grade student at Fulton Junior High School has reportedly passed away.

In a letter sent to parents on Thursday morning, Fulton Principal Joi Wills and Assistant Principal Alex Herrell shared the news that Darrion Green had died.

“It is with great sadness that I share with you the news that Darrion Green, Fulton eighth grader, has died. The details of his death are not known at this time, but we respect the family’s wishes and privacy at this difficult time and ask that you do the same,” the letter stated.

Fulton counselors, as well as other area school district counselors, will be available to work with both students and staff for as long as needed.

“As a school we will do everything we can support all students. Our hearts are grieving. We know this event will have a profound effect on everyone who knew this young man but we also know that every student on the Fulton campus and throughout our community will be touched by this news,” the letter continued.

In a post on the District 90 Facebook page, it was announced that all after school activities, including practices, have been cancelled for today.
