Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C).
The health and safety of our communities remains our top priority, and we will continue to take all appropriate measures to help keep our students, families, and staff members safe. Two weeks ago, we shared some information with you regarding the Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (PMIS), a rare condition that is potentially life-threatening in children.
Last week, we learned from DOHMH that the condition was renamed Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C).
Guidance issued by DOHMH remains in place, and we urge you to visit nyc.gov/health at any time for this important information related to MIS-C. There, you will also find the MIS-C Fact Sheet, provided last week and newly translated into multiple languages here. As a gentle reminder, families should continue to discuss with their children the importance of the following measures and ensure your children are doing the following:
- Consistent with Executive Order 202.17: all people over the age of two who can medically tolerate a face covering must wear one when they are outside their home if they cannot maintain physical distance from others. Free face coverings are available at DOE Meal Hubs in all five boroughs—you can find one close to you on the DOE website.
- Physical distancing and good hygiene remain critical, even while wearing a face covering.
- When outside the home, adults and children must maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and others whenever possible.
- Parents should remind children of the importance of good hand hygiene and should help ensure that children frequently wash their hands. Sincerely, Richard A. Carranza
- Chancellor New York City Department of Education
- We will continue to communicate with you on a weekly basis regarding MIS-C. Please visit nyc.gov/health at any time for the latest information on MIS-C, and do not hesitate to contact 311 with any questions.
Before Entering the Building
Please note that The City of New Your has mandated that anyone seeking to enter and DOE building must first complete the Health Screening before entering the facilities. The link for the site can be found here!
You must also have proper ID and your Child's OSIS number
COVID-19 Psychoeducation Resources
Helping Your Child
Normalizing talking with Students about COVID-19 related mental health challenges is a form of psychoeducation.
Psychoeducation is offered to individuals who are suffering from mental health challenges that are impairing their quality of life. The aim of psychoeducation is to give both the individuals who suffer from psychological conditions and their families a stronger base of knowledge regarding ways to cope and thrive—providing the person suffering from the psychological condition a better road map towards healthy functioning and management of their challenges.
Use this work time to brows these COVID-19 psychoeducation resources and identify a couple that you will return to later to prepare yourself (and your staff) to talk with families and children about these issues at start of the academic year.
