On-Site Flu Shot Clinics
All NKC Schools employees are invited to participate in the district's on-site flu shot clinics! Eligible dependents are also welcome to participate. Clinics will be held at school sites across the district beginning Monday, September 27 through mid-October.
Events are open to all employees and their dependents (ages 5 or older) and covered by the following insurance providers:
- Aetna/Meritain Health
- All Savers
- BlueCross Blue Shield
- United Healthcare/UMR
- Medicare Part B and Medicare Advantage Plans
If you do not fall under any of these insurance providers, please let the nurse know. The cost for those without an accepted insurance provider will be $32 (cash or check made out to Healthy Solutions, Inc.).
Note: You will need to bring your insurance card and completed consent form with you. The consent form is available here.
Need additional help? Feel free to contact Amber Paxton, Wellness Specialist, with any questions or concerns.
Email Safety Reminders
Reports of scam emails sent to district email addresses have been on the rise. These messages may seem legitimate or even appear to come from an NKC Schools address. Such emails often include suspicious links or requests for more information.
Other common tactics include an urgent request, payment of some kind, or impersonation of a district administrator. Please be aware that these emails are fake and should be ignored, deleted, and reported. If you are ever unsure about an email, feel free to contact the Help Desk for assistance.
AED Locator App
New employees are encouraged to download the Pulse Point AED app. The mobile app provides the location of AEDs in each of our district buildings as well as across the United States. It can be used by any employees to locate AEDs on field trips or in other schools. Click here to download for Android or Apple.
Earn Your Medical Insurance Premium Discount
Employees enrolled in medical insurance with the district can receive a discount off their monthly premium by completing qualifying wellness activities. If you choose to opt out, the regular employee premium rate of an additional $30 per month ($15 per paycheck for those paid semi-monthly) will be applied beginning January 2022.

Meritas Health Locations
As a reminder, if you are enrolled for medical insurance through NKC Schools with either the A1 EPO Co-Pay or A3 EPO Primary Care 100 plans, you have access to any Meritas Primary Care clinic with no office visit co-pay. The Meritas clinic on Vivion Road is no longer a walk-in clinic for NKC Schools employees. You still have access to care at the Vivion location, but you must have an appointment.
