Holiday Celebrations and Holiday Travel:

As we enter Fall and Winter many of us are starting to make plans for the holidays. Whether you’re visiting family members one state over or across the globe, travel makes up a huge part of the holiday season. There’s always a risk of getting sick while traveling because of the inherent stress of traveling, interacting with frequently touched surfaces in public places, and changes in climate and environment. But this year brings different considerations because of the Coronavirus Pandemic and the New York State Travel Advisory.

Things to consider as we enjoy this time with Family.

NYS COVID-19 Travel Advisory

The NYS COVID-19 travel advisory requires individuals who have traveled out of New York State to noncontiguous states for more than 24 hours to either quarantine for 14 days upon return to New York State or “Test to Exit” quarantine.

For travelers who were out-of-state for more than 24 hours:

  • Travelers must obtain a test within three days of departure, prior to arrival in New York.
  • The traveler must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for three days.
  • On day 4 of their quarantine, the traveler must obtain another COVID test. If both tests comes back negative, the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test.

The Office of the Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn has expanded the International Travel Advisory to include all International Travel.

****MAKE YOU SURE YOU LABEL EVERYTHING WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME****

Growth Mindset ways to help your child!!!!

TALK ABOUT IT
Talk with your child about his or her day, but guide the
discussion by asking questions like:
– Did you make a mistake today? What did you learn?
– What did you do that was difficult today?

Instead of saying, “You’re so smart!”
praise effort, goal setting, persisting
through challenges, or being creative.

You can say something like:
– “Wow! You must have worked
really hard on this!”

PRAISE THE PROCESS
THE BRAIN CAN GROW!

Remind your child that his or her intelligence is not fixed.

Remind him/her that when things are difficult, her brain grows if she
persists through the challenge. Each time he/she learns something
new, his/ her brain is making new connections. Your child needs to
know this is possible!

ENCOURAGE FAILURE (say what?!)
HELP THEM CHANGE THEIR DIALOGUE
The way your child talks to himself makes a huge impact on his
mindset. If he says, “This is too hard!” help him change that to
“I can’t do this yet, but I will keep trying.” Give him the words to
say when he is feeling defeated by modeling it yourself!

Your child needs to know that failure can (and often
does) happen and it is okay! Remind him/her that each time
he/she fails and tries again, her brain is growing stronger!

Don’t step in to prevent your child’s failure – this is how
he/she learns to persevere in the face of challenges.
