Employee Wellness

Message from our Superintendent on Wellness...

Our District’s strength and success depends on you. Our Wellness Program offers a holistic approach to ensuring you have the resources you need to make good choices, whether in the classroom or at home, that can help us live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives. 

Your participation in this effort is completely voluntary. Each of us can take steps, even small ones, to improve our overall well-being. We hope you will join us by participating in this worthwhile effort and take full advantage of the opportunities it offers you.

NEW Simplified Requirements for the 2024-25 Employee Wellness Program!

Eligible employees only need to complete a biometric screening by March 31, 2025 to opt-in to the 2025-26 Wellness Medical Plan.


Eligible employees may either participate in a biometric screening event at a District hosted location, or may complete the biometric screening with their own provider. The results of the biometric screening are collected by Saint Alphonsus, and kept strictly confidential. The results of the screening will not adversely impact an employee's eligibility for the Wellness Medical Plan.

This new approach to Wellness will provide employees with greater efficacy and agency in approaching one’s health. It is a priority to continue our efforts in supporting the health of District employees by focusing on Wellness Program offerings that are of value to you. The following programs and resources are available at no cost to eligible employees:

Prefer to visit your own physician?

If you have a Wellness exam scheduled with your healthcare provider this summer, you can submit the completed Biometric Screening Verification form to Saint Alphonsus starting on September 1, 2024. 

Forms may be emailed to sawellness@saintalphonsus.org OR mailed to:

Wellness Program participants who complete their biometric screening with their own physician still have the option to work with a Registered Dietician and/or Registered Nurse with the Saint Alphonsus Corporate Health and Wellness department FREE of charge. Employees can call 208-367-6225 to schedule an appointment.

Next Steps - Take Charge of Your Health

What is Take Charge? The Take Charge Program is designed to help individuals manage their identified health risks from the biometric screening and prevent chronic illnesses. 

This program is offered at no cost to members on the District's medical plan, and provides support and expertise to those whose biometric screening results are outside the recommended targets for health.  

Spine Wellness Enhanced Benefit

This benefit covers outpatient office visits for spine wellness care with a provider associated with this benefit.  The member will complete an initial consult with a spine wellness physician who will determine if conservative care is an appropriate treatment plan for them. If so, the doctor will refer that patient to seek follow-up treatment with a physical therapist associated with the Saint Alphonsus Acute Spine Care Center. For information or to make an appointment call (208) 302-3760.
