Nurse’s Notes

As the School Nurse, my number one priority is the health and well-being of our students, families, and staff at Saint Joseph Prep. It is important to have current and accurate information about the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to the links below. In addition, Mental and Emotional Health Resources can be found on the College and School Counseling Resources page. I am in frequent contact with professionals about the current situation and will share the recommended guidelines on a return to school safety plan when they become available.

If you have any medical questions or concerns or need any clarification of information please email me at

Stay safe, Ms. Joanne Shea

Stop the Spread, Save Lives, Stay Informed

Do your Job, Follow all Recommended Guidelines

How to Protect yourself and others:

  1. Stay home as much as you can, wear a face covering in public
  2. KEEP a safe distance, 6 feet from others
  3. WASH hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use an alcohol- based hand sanitizer
  4. COVER your cough or sneeze by covering your nose and mouth into your elbow
  5. SICK? Call your health care provider if you are feeling sick


The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has drafted a 17-page document that details interim guidance on how businesses, schools, churches, mass transit and other organizations should handle safely reopening to the public amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The draft guidelines, which were sent to Washington this week, are still under review by the Trump Administration and could change.

Once the official guidelines for return/reentry to school is complete, SJP will work closely with local and state officials to implement the requirements to insure the health and safety of all students, families and staff.

The Saint Joseph Prep building will remain closed, as we continue to monitor the situation.
