Illness & Medical

It is important that you call the school if your child is absent or arriving late. Please report all absences to the Attendance Line at 403-777-6240 ext. 1. See more on our Attendance page.

Severe Allergies

We have children at our school who are allergic to peanuts, nuts and related nut products as well as eggs and dairy products. The specifics and the severity are different for each child. While the Calgary Board of Education policy reflects the fact that trying to ban dairy, peanuts, nuts and related products from schools is unrealistic, at University School we discourage the use of these products to the greatest extent possible in the classes where children have severe allergies. We encourage parents/guardians of children with severe allergies to educate their children in making responsible decisions about how to manage these allergies on their own. Parents/Guardians should make the classroom teachers and office staff aware of health issues and provide written notification to the principal by completing the required forms.

Physical / Medical Concerns

If your child has a physical or medical condition (i.e. allergies, asthma, diabetes, etc.), please complete a Student Health Plan and Student Emergency Response Protocol Form.

If your child requires medication to be administered at school you will need to complete a Student Health Plan form. If it is a prescription medication then these forms need to be signed by your child’s physician. All medication should be brought to the office where it can be stored safely and allows all staff to have ready access to it in case of emergency. Keep in mind that children move from one learning environment to another during the school day.

If your child suffers from a severe allergy we need you to complete a Student Health Plan. All medical forms must be completed yearly at the beginning of the year and updated with any changes that arise throughout the year. It is crucial that our medical information is kept up-to-date to ensure the safety of your child. All of these forms are available from the office.
