Stafford School Hours 7:45 a.m.-4:15 p.m.  Stafford doors open at 7:20 a.m. A student is considered tardy if they are not inside the building by 7:45 a.m.  Breakfast is available starting at 7:25a.m.  All car riders are dropped off and picked up, using the road behind the playground off Dilworth.  Students enter and exit the gym door.  The front doors are only for bus riders and walkers.  If your student is tardy you must come in the front office and sign them in.  We are a 4-day district Monday-Thursday.  If there is a holiday on a Monday, they will attend school on Friday.  Italy ISD full calendar can be found on our webpage.  Please go to Stafford’s page to see specific events for elementary school.


Morning Tardies/Early Pick-Ups/Absences will be counted throughout the school year, and when a student reaches a certain amount, “learning recovery” will be required on the Friday Intervention Day’s.
