Saugus schools OK visit by Santa
But the holiday event must be set up month before
Santa Claus is coming to town. In a unanimous vote Thursday night, the Saugus School Committee decided to continue a decades-old tradition of Santa - a town firefighter dressed up in beard and suit - visiting kindergartners. Under new rules approved by the board, the date and time of the visit will be established a month in advance, and parents will receive a notice allowing them to withdraw their child from participating.
