The internet fiber at Stafford has blown down and they will be without internet tomorrow until further notice. That means phones, computers, etc…. will be out of order. Because we won’t be able to check visitors access, we are asking people that are not district employees to refrain from coming to Stafford for the safety of our students and staff. We will let you know when connectivity is restored. If you need to get a message to Stafford, please call the high school at 972-483-7411 and we will get the message to them. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Rachel L. Kistner Italy ISD Superintendent

Crocs or croc style shoes that slide on DO NOT count for athletic shoes. With Science Labs in 5th and 6th grade classes close toed shoes are also a must, and Crocs or croc style shoes are not safe. Please make sure your students are wearing athletic shoes each day. Thank you for your support.
