Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe, secure, and healthful learning environment for students to develop socially, emotionally, and academically and to their fullest potential.

We will continue to develop and implement proactive measures to improve the risk management process.

Injury and Illness Prevention

The personal safety and health of each employee, student, and the visitor is a primary concern of the Saugus Union School District board of trustees and shall always be a part of and equal to any function of work performed. The objective of the district’s injury and illness prevention program is to maintain a safe and healthy environment for employees, students, and visitors, minimize the number of injuries and illnesses that occur during any school year, and comply with regulatory requirements. A copy of the IIPP is available to all employees for review.
