health and medical information

Medical Appointments

Parents can send a note with his/her child, who will then obtain an early dismissal slip from the front office to present to the classroom teacher for early dismissal.

Illness at School

If a student becomes ill while in school, he/she must be excused by the health office before leaving the building with a parent or emergency contact. See below for specific information for elementary and middle/high schools.

Elementary

If a student becomes ill while in school, the teacher will send the student to the health office (located in student services). Parents, or an emergency contact, will be notified by the health office should a student need to leave school. The student must be signed out from the front office prior to leaving the building.

Middle School/High School

If a student becomes ill while in school, he/she must report to the health office prior to making parent contact and before leaving the building. Parents, or an emergency contact, will be notified by the health office should a student need to leave school. When leaving, students must be signed out from the office. No student who is feeling ill or has been injured should leave school without first reporting to the health office.

Immunization Information

Incoming 6th grade students will need to show proof of having received a booster of the Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine when he/she registers for the upcoming school year in order to comply with State of Colorado immunization requirements for school attendance. University Schools' registration will not be complete until we document your child's immunizations. Please note: children receive this vaccine after their 11th birthday.

Many physicians regularly update children's immunization statuses and your child may be current on the Tdap vaccine. Please contact your physician's office to either update school records or schedule this immunization. You can also obtain Immunizations at the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment. Call (970) 304.6420 to schedule an appointment.
