Meet the School Nurse

Mrs. Kathleen S. Buda, RN


I was born & raised in Canastota & graduated in 1972 from Canastota Jr.-Sr. High.  My husband, Michael & our 4 daughters are also Canastota Alumni.

After graduating from Union College with a degree in Psychology, I decided to get my Nursing degree.  After I became a Registered Nurse in 1981, I worked at the Oneida City Hospital, while starting to raise a family. I started subbing as a School Nurse in 1990. In 1991, I was hired as the PSES/SSES School Nurse.  A few years late, our district had the good wisdom to have a School Nurse for each building, & I became the SSES Nurse.

I just want you to know that I love my job & I love taking care of your children.  I am a firm believer in the Golden Rule, so I will take care of your children the way I would want others to take care of mine.  If you ever have any questions or have any information you would like to share with me, please feel free to contact me.  I really look forward to working with you to help keep your child happy & healthy!
