“District 6 is committed to providing wellness support and opportunities for all employees, and it is part of our strategic plan,” Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch said. “Our employees work very hard and have a tremendous responsibility to serve the children of this community. Committing to keeping themselves well physically and mentally is essential to our mission.”
