CAT Tracks for May 14, 2007
WINDING DOWN...UPDATED

Nine school days to go...and many, many less "teaching" days!

It's time for the annual...

YEAR-END REMINDERS:

BCBS GROUP HEALTH INSURANCE RENEWAL PROPOSAL

The vote of the members (accepted by the Cairo BOE at its meeting on Thursday, May 10th) was "No Change"...to continue current coverage with no change to deductible or insurance card. As previously explained, this means that employees will begin paying a small portion of the premium for "employee only" coverage beginning May 30th. This first payment will be a "double payment" to make up for May 15th. So...for those covered...expect to see a deduction of $32.31 for BCBS on the May 30th check, which will drop to $16.15 on June 15th. Then...on August 15th, that amount will drop to $12.40.

YEAR END LUNCHEON

As usual, the District will hold its annual "Farewell Party" on May 23rd. That is the day when any retirees will be honored. We know for a fact that five long-time CATs have officially made that decision...and there may be more to come. So...please join us in wishing your friends and colleagues "Bon Voyage"!


Well, that's a wrap for today. Won't do the annual "farewell", since there will be more editions of CAT Tracks to come before this year is out. Bye for now...and have a great weekend!
