A break-in at Cedarcreek Elementary School resulted in the loss of 30 laptops valued at about $9,000, a Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station official said Friday.

Lt. Bill Weiss said the break-in occurred sometime Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Other details of the burglary, such as when it occurred and how many suspects may be involved, were not revealed.

Joan Lucid, superintendent of the Saugus Union School District, said this is the second burglary at a district school in the past week.

A break-in also occurred at Rio Vista Elementary School between Friday night and Sunday morning last weekend. Thieves there stole two speakers valued at $150, a power drill valued at $150 and a $100 microphone from the school’s multipurpose room, according to the Sheriff’s Department log.

Lucid said she is unsure when, or if, the district will be able to replace anything that was lost in the break-ins.

“It’s not fair to the children,” she said. “The kids are who ultimately pay the price in these kinds of situations.”
Lucid said community action is often the key to crime prevention.

“It’s up to all of us,” she said. “This is our community. These are our schools and we need to be very protective of them.”
