AND THE WINNERS OF LOCKDOWN SHADE GIVEAWAY 2018 ARE…


3rd PLACE PRIZE ($500 credit in lockdown shades) GOES TO…

Lely High School in Naples, Florida! Congratulations!!!

Lely High School is part of Collier County Public Schools. A dedicated teacher at this school was interested in adding an extra layer of security with our classroom security blinds to protect her students so she entered our contest. And now, just like that, they are one of our winners and will be supplied with $500 worth of window coverings at no cost. It’s amazing how it only took one person to make a big difference.

As soon as we drew Lely High School as a winner we were curious about who they are as a district and decided to learn more. We are so impressed to see what Collier County is doing to increase school security and are incredibly proud to be part of their life saving efforts. They provide a well-designed web page that effectively communicates their safety and security plans to keep the entire community informed of their efforts.

2nd PLACE PRIZE ($1000 credit in lockdown shades) GOES TO…

University of West Georgia (UWG) in Carrollton, Ga! Congratulations!!!

UWG is located about 50 miles west of Atlanta. UWG joins the growing list of colleges and universities that are seeing the need to add window coverings to classrooms and offices in their facilities to enhance security across the campus. It is incredibly awesome that a member of the University of West Georgia Police Department saw our Hideaway Helper lockdown shades and decided to enter our Lockdown Shade Giveaway. Once again, a significant impact will be made just from a simple act.

We are thrilled to be working more closely with school resources officers, police chiefs, fire departments, and other government agencies who are offering support and guidance to local schools and facilities to increase safety and security. The team at School Safety Solution is inspired by how long the list of people dedicated to keeping kids safe continues to grow and grow. We are excited to be able to partner with UWG to add lockdown shades to their campus.


1st PLACE PRIZE ($1500 credit in lockdown shades) GOES TO…

St Vrain Valley School District in Longmont, Colorado! Congratulations!!!

St. Vrain Valley School District, located about 30 miles north of Denver, was entered in the Lockdown Shade Giveaway by team members of the security and emergency management department. We look forward to supplying their district with $1500 worth of lockdown shades at no cost to the district. That’s a whole lotta window shades!!!

As we learned more about St. Vrain Valley SD we discovered that they, along with all schools in Colorado are part of a statewide safety initiative called Safe 2 Tell. Without a doubt we highly recommend reading about this program. It provides an opportunity for all students and community members to safely and anonymously report anything that may concern or threaten them. Whether an incident occurs at school or anywhere within the community such as at a train station or the local store, people are encouraged to say something to authorities. The program allows people to do so without being fearful. Kudos to the state of Colorado!
