Basehor-Linwood Assistance Services Food for Kids Backpack Program
Basehor-Linwood Assistance Services (BLAS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing a variety of emergency services for residents of the Basehor-Linwood school district. These services may include utility payments, food, school supplies, and holiday assistance. All requests are confidential. Those needing assistance may call the BLAS at (913) 406-9856 and leave a message. The BLAS coordinator will return your call.
The BLAS Food for Kids Backpack Program is available once again this year. The Backpack program provides a weekly bag filled with food for elementary aged school children that are in need. BLAS delivers the bags each week to GRAY HAWK and then OUR counselor Miss Hubbard distributes the bags on Friday. This program is fully-funded through community donations and the number of participants is limited based on the donations received. There is no cost to participate in the program.
If your child is in need of this service, please reach out to Miss Hubbard at email@example.com.

The Nervous System, Behaviors, ADHD, and more
When we talk about challenges that OUR students sometimes face, we are quick to make some assumptions. Are they dealing with ADHD? Are they making behavioral choices on their own? Is there something deeper? In preparing for a presentation about ADHD, I came across this video and it spoke to me. I wanted to share it with you all to continue to build an understanding of neurodivergent children.
[The term “neurodivergent” describes people whose brain differences affect how their brain works. That means they have different strengths and challenges from people whose brains don't have those differences.]
