2020–2021 Wellness Offerings

LPS Wellness cares about our staff, students and families being well and staying well. Partcipation, while fun and encouraged, is voluntary. Please consider taking part in any/all offerings available to you.

LPS Wellness and UNL collaborative wellness programs are available to all LPS staff, substitutes, volunteers and adults in partnered organizations (e.g. TeamMates, CLC, Foundation for LPS). Spouses and partners are welcome as well.

Continuum Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services are open to all employees.

Educators Health Alliance Blue Cross Blue Shield (EHA) Wellness Programs are only available to full and part-time LPS staff who are insurance benefits eligible, no matter their choice of insurance coverage or not. Benefits such as WW discounts depend on insurance election. Spouses may take part in EHA activities only if covered by LPS insurance, after verification of coverage.
