Meet Our School Nurse

I’m Kathy Honsinger the nurse at St. Mary’s Academy. I am a graduate of St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Syracuse. I worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital for 10 years before coming to SMA. The most rewarding aspect of being at St. Mary’s Academy is that it’s a wonderful place to work and to be around a very caring staff and amazing kids!

If you have any questions or need to discuss any health issues regarding your child, please feel free to contact me by calling the school office or by email at

Please remember to send a copy of physicals done over the summer into the Health Office to update your child’s health file.
