Service Academy Informational Zoom Meeting for students and families
The link below is to register for Congressman Zeldin’s Annual Service Academy Information Day Forum which this year will be held via Zoom due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. This event will be held this Saturday, June 27, starting at 10am and is for high school students (juniors and seniors) who are interested in applying to one of our nation’s five service academies. In addition to the congressman, this Zoom forum will feature representatives of the services academies, members of the congressman’s review committee, and parents who are helping their student to apply for a congressional nomination for entrance to an academy.
A message to students and families from the High School Guidance Office:
To help you and your family cope with this time period, consider the following wellness tips:
Practice Healthy Habits and take time for your own self-care. Make it a priority to get the necessary amount of sleep, eat well and exercise or go for walks regularly.
Seek news only from reliable sources, and in short blocks of time. It’s easy to find ourselves over-consuming news, hour by hour, minute by minute for the latest updates. Try not to become absorbed in the coverage for long periods of time. Find additional opportunities to disconnect in a healthy way.
Stay Connected, while avoiding crowds. School closures can mean you might find yourself isolated from the friends you would normally see at school. If so, make the effort to stay connected through social media, texting, email, and video calls. Stay in close contact with loved ones. Consider taking on a new hobby or interest!
Take frequent breaks to ease your mind and distract yourself when you start to feel anxiety or worry. Play a game. Read a book. Watch a movie. Download a meditation app. Take a yoga class.
