The dance, which is held every year at Six Flags Magic Mountain, features DJ music and a light show by Mike Diaz Entertainment, raffle prizes and food available for sale, as well as the Green Lantern and Batman rides open for unlimited rides.
“Every year, the school resource deputies and the juvenile detectives get together and welcome the kids to Magic Mountain for a dance,” said Deputy Tom Drake of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station in an earlier interview, who is also a school resource officer for Saugus High. “It’s well chaperoned, and it’s a way for us to make positive contact with Santa Clarita Valley students.”
The event is for 8th through 12th grade students from Santa Clarita schools only and students must have their student ID to enter. Tickets will be sold at the back gate and the cost is $10 per student.
“It’s a pretty good turnout and the students have a lot of fun,” said Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “It’s nice for the kids to be able to go to a dance with their friends from other (Santa Clarita) schools, which normally you can’t do.”
“It’s a big tradition here in this valley,” said Sue Carpenter, spokeswoman for Six Flags Magic Mountain, in an earlier interview. “We’re excited to be a big community partner with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department in putting (the dance) on.”
The All Schools Dance, which is sponsored by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Foundation and Six Flags Magic Mountain, is scheduled for 7-11 p.m. March 14 at Six Flags’ back gate.
