After returning from spring break on Mar. 26, Basehor-Linwood High School and Basehor-Linwood Middle School students found the parking lot entrance adorned with signs sharing positive messages written by members of the Basehor Parents in Action group, a group started after tragic events took place in other school districts.

“The Basehor Parents in Action group was founded by Erin Drennon and Jenny Bizzell as a way to proactively let kids know that there are people listening if they are dealing with something like depression, anxiety, bullying, or just going through a rough time in general,” said group member Tanya Wilson.

The signs were written with black paint rather than green and gold in case some students associate their depression with their school, in which case they wouldn’t see the signs as directly connected to the school.

“The signs were a way to reach out to the kids at the middle school and high school and let them know that someone’s listening,” said Wilson.

The Basehor Parent in Action group plans to take more action in the community in the future, and that these signs are just the beginning of their plans.
