Wellesley High School Open Tuesday in Wake of Randolph Death

Grief counselors will provide services to those in need between 1 and 3 p.m. today.

In the wake of a skiing accident that took the life of a student over the weekend, Wellesley High School grief and guidance counselors was made available Tuesday.

The school – originally closed for the week due to February vacation – was open between 1 and 3 p.m. Counselors provided services to students mourning the loss of ninth grader Hannah Randolph, who was killed Sunday when she crashed into a tree while skiing with her family at a resort in Colorado.

Principal Andrew Keough, in a letter to parents, said Randolph, 15, was an “extremely special person who touched all facets of our school.”

“She was a gifted artist, musician, athlete, scholar, and most importantly someone who cared deeply for others,” he said.  “She will be missed terribly.”

Counselors will continue to be made available as necessary going forward, Keough said.

Keough provided online resources for grieving families and welcomed those seeking further support to call Human Relations Services (HRS) at 781-235-4950.

Randolph was an only child, according to Superintendent Bella T. Wong in an e-mail to parents yesterday.

“These will be very difficult days for her family and the community as we come to terms with this tragic loss,” she said.
