Counselors were available at the school all day for students to talk to.

The director at the Ridgefield Playhouse says Sandhu brought magic to the stage and audiences loved her performance in this past year's production of "The Nutcracker," as well as in other past shows.

A memorial for Sandhu has been set up at the crash site. A Mass will be celebrated in her honor on Wednesday in Ridgefield.
