With Santa Clarita Valley schools scheduled to return to session Thursday, Aug. 16, multiple districts will hold “Back to School Night” events to introduce their new and returning students and teachers.

“Back to School Night lets our schools launch the academic year in the best possible way,” said Colleen Hawkins, superintendent of Saugus Union School District. “It really is a fun night with administrators, teachers, students and parents able to mix and get excited about what is to come.”

Administrators and teachers of the Saugus, Castaic and Newhall school districts will all be on hand in their classrooms throughout the week to meet the school community and discuss expectations for the coming school year.
