Safe and Sound Schools Announces The “Good Days” Tour and Contest

Safe and Sound Schools is hosting The “Good Days” Tour campaign and contest this year to encourage high school students to assess their school culture, and teach the connection between a great school culture and overall school safety.

Safe and Sound Schools and actor Jeremy Ray Taylor announced the launch of The “Good Days” Tour campaign and contest. The tour encourages high school students to think about their campus’s culture, and shows how important a positive culture is to overall school safety.

Safe and Sound Schools is a national school safety nonprofit that was started by Michele Gay and Alissa Parker in 2013. Both Gay and Parker’s children died in the Sandy Hook shooting. The organization works with school communities and mental health, law enforcement, and safety professionals to create and ensure the safest possible learning environment for all youth. They deliver crisis-prevention, response, and recovery programs, tools, and resources, backed by national experts, to educate all members of the school community.

Students can apply for their high school to become a stop on the tour as part of this nationwide contest. The tour will include activities that will take place during a school assembly, including:

• A SPARK Workshop with Jeremy Ray Taylor

• Musical performance by Chasing da Vinci

• Presentations with Safe and Sound Schools’ Michele Gay & Alissa Parker

• An evening concert for students and families

To enter, students must visit and submit a video application. The contest ends on August 31, 2019. The organization will announce three winning high schools that will be tour stops on their tour in September.

  • Making Safety and Security Intrinsic to School Design

    Public anxieties about school safety are escalating across the country. According to a 2023 Gallup report, 44% of parents fear for their child’s physical safety at school, a 10 percentage-point increase since 2019. Unfortunately, these fears are likely to increase if the incidence of school tragedies continues to mount. As a result, school leaders are now charged with two non-negotiable responsibilities. The first, as always, is to ensure kids have what they need to learn, grow, and thrive. Sadly, their second responsibility is to keep the children in their care safe from threats and physical danger. Read Now
