Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (Update)

Dear PS 101 Families,

(Please read below from the Chancellor)

The DOE is committed to keeping families informed about recent developments regarding Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). MIS-C is a new health condition associated with COVID-19 that is appearing in children in New York City and elsewhere. The syndrome was previously called Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (PMIS). MIS-C is like other serious inflammatory conditions, such as Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome. Since children with MIS-C may become seriously ill, it is important that families know the signs and symptoms their children may experience, so they can get help right away.

Please read this letter from the Chancellor to families. Translated versions will be available at the same link beginning June 8.
