All NYC Public School Families to Receive $420 Per Child
More than $880 million in additional food assistance will go to help New Yorkers with children who previously received free and reduced-price meals at school. The food benefit, which is part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, will be issued in June. If you already have an EBT card, you'll receive the funds automatically in early June. If you don't already receive food benefits, you will receive a notice from the state in the mail explaining when and how you'll receive your food benefit, which should come through in late June. You can find more information on the State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance website.
Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C)— PMIS is a rare condition that is not contagious. However, because it is life-threatening, it is important to know the signs. Most children have a persistent, high fever lasting several days, along with other symptoms, including:
Irritability or sluggishness
Abdominal pain without another explanation
Conjunctivitis, or red or pink eyes
Enlarged lymph node (“gland”) on one side of the neck
Red, cracked lips or red tongue that looks like a strawberry
Swollen hands and feet, which might also be red
You should call your doctor if your child becomes ill and has had continued fever. Your doctor will ask about your child’s symptoms and use that information to recommend next steps. If your child is severely ill, you should go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 immediately. For more information, please visit here.

Let’s Learn NYC! On WNET/PBS
Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza announced the launch of Let’s Learn NYC!, a new educational public television program produced by the WNET Group in partnership with the New York City Department of Education (DOE) featuring lessons for children in 3K through second grade that will supplement remote learning. Programming will offer age-appropriate content that is aligned to standards and lessons for early childhood education and includes foundational reading skills, literacy, math, social studies, and science.
As we continue to evolve into our "remote learning", we will continue to find ways to come together as a community and be there for each other.
