Free Flu Shots

Nurse Supervisor Jill Cooke reminds us that the flu shot is free this year for employees with State Insurance coverage, that the supply of doses is limited, and that the flu is already in our area. Employees planning to get vaccinated should do so as soon as possible for the vaccine to be effective before flu becomes widespread.

Annual Enrollment ... October 1–31

During the benefits enrollment period in October, employees may enroll in, re-enroll in, or make changes to various benefit options. The new Benefits Advantage booklet will be coming to your location soon and is available via the Employee Portal on the district website. Trained benefits counselors will be on site to meet with you and explain your benefits for 2016.

Please refer to the email from Rhonda Henderson (Sept. 23rd) for important information on this year’s enrollment and directions for accessing your PEBA insurance profile online at MyBenefits, which is accessible for your reference and for contact information updates at any time and for making coverage changes during the enrollment period.

If you vote in your local election that day and return your "I voted" sticker to Mrs. Davis (attached to an index card with your name), you will be allowed to wear jeans on Friday, November 6th.
