I hope this information finds everyone well. For those parents who don’t know me, my name is Kathy Lafontant and I am your Class of 2020 Senior Advisor. I along with my team which consists of Ms. Raymond, Ms Green, Ms Ford, Ms Sara and Ms Correa along with administration are  working together to address all Class of 2020 Concerns. That includes but is not limited to the concerns of you the parents and caregivers as well. 

So that all are aware, unfortunately the school building has not been opened to administrators and staff members.  Therefore I do not have a specific date as to when Refunds will begin. I need access to the building In Order to get the receipt book and the check book so that checks can be distributed in an orderly fashion. Once refunds begin, they will be returned as follows:


Senior Trip: Full Refund will be given

Senior Prom: Full Refund will be given

Senior Dues: a partial Refund will be given  depending on the amount that was paid- students who have paid will receive their cap and gown, diploma case, Senior duffel bag, Senior shirt, diploma case.


As soon as we determine building access we will structure how and when students can come in by appointment to pick up the refunds. We still have to maintain state mandated social distancing orders  as soon as I receive a specific date, I will update this information in my Google classroom and on the ITAVA website. 


Parents I ask that students please log onto my google classroom, code: znlm65u for any updated information!! If you need to reach me for any reason please feel free to do so at: klafontant@schools.nyc.gov, I will be more than happy to assist. You can also check the ITAVA website for parent information as I will put up information on the website as well. 



Mrs. Lafontant
