In brief: New apt. and sick

Call the local health department and report the infestation so they can check it out.
The children's sickness may not be related to mice, e.g. Maybe allergies to things in new apartment, exposure to new set of sick kids. Sometimes apartments have been fumigtated and have residual pesticides and toxic chemicals that make kids sick. Check for lead in paint etc. You have to check everything.
