We have had a tremendous start to the 2018-2019 school year. Each day there are numerous positive things occurring around the District. This would not be possible without everyone working together toward our goal of creating a positive learning experience for all students. Thank you for doing your part to make Fort Osage the special place we all appreciate. Please enjoy your break and we will look forward to seeing you on January 2nd. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We are excited to continue to have access to the Consiglio Wellness Center from January 1 to December 31, 2019. All Fort Osage School District regularly employed employees, their spouses and dependents, and Fort Osage retirees, their spouses and dependents will have access to the Consiglio Wellness Center for a fee of $40.00 per person per visit. The Consiglio Wellness Center is a “convenient care” facility located at 1501 NW Jefferson Street in Blue Springs. Medical staff includes physicians and family and pediatric nurse practitioners as well as various wellness providers focused on prevention and urgent care needs. While this is not a substitute for a primary care physician, it will provide a convenient and affordable option for our staff to receive basic and immediate health care. The $40.00 is a fee for service and does not go toward your insurance deductible. A health savings account (HSA) can be utilized to pay the fee for service. Appointments will be taken by phone. Walk-ins are also welcome. Due to federal guidelines, employees and retirees who receive Medicare or Medicaid are not eligible to utilize the Wellness Center.
