MILLSTADT, IL (KPLR) - Students in Millstadt are mourning the loss of their school nurse. Jody Graff died Tuesday in a car accident.

It is spirit week at Millstadt Consolidated School. It turned out to be a very somber one for students and staff. School nurse Jody Graff was killed in a car accident on Illinois 158.

Flags were flying at half staff at the school Wednesday to remember Graff. The school also had counselors on hand for students.

Graff was the only nurse in the district working with students pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade. She had only been with the district for 6 weeks but was already establishing relationships with students.

The flag will continue to fly at half staff all week.
