It is the policy of Glen Ellyn School District 41 to provide for the safety and security of all members of its community during normal operational hours and after hour activities. The District believes that pursuit of academic excellence can only flourish in a safe environment where everyone on site is treated with respect and courtesy.
To this end, the district is committed to maintaining a safe learning environment free from disruptive behavior or dangerous conditions. This is where the School Safety Solution, LLC hide away helpers have come into play. These safety shades have been a very integral part of the district’s safety lock-down protocols. There are hide away helper shades in each and every classroom in five schools throughout our district.
They are easy to install, and save precious time during a lock-down, and are affordable. All the teacher has to do is lock the door, pull the strap on the shade, and the window is instantly covered affording the teacher precious time to get the students out of sight. The district has many odd size door windows, and side lights in our facilities. Hide away shades can be customized for any length, and width we have inquired about. They are durable, and easy to clean. The installations is effortless, and the adhesive used to affix the Velcro backing to the doors have held up well. We have had the shades in place for over three years now without incident. I am a firm supporter in the hide away helpers and highly recommend them to be added to your facilities.
