Saugus Union School District
We are pleased to announce the addition of new elementary schools to our program. If you are interested in volunteering with any of the schools please contact the principal listed.
Please keep in mind that it may take a few days for a response to your email/voicemail; the staff at each school site is working hard to find appropriate placements for volunteers and this involves contacting multiple teachers, waiting for teachers to respond to the request; and relaying information back to each student volunteer. Thank you for your patience with this matter and please remember to be courteous and professional with all involved staff members at the school site.
Remember that volunteer opportunities are limited to regular school day hours; if you only have evening and weekend availability, school sites are not a good choice for you.
