In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the City of Stafford was fortunate that it did not receive the impact that our friends and neighbors in other areas of Greater Houston did. The Facilities, while briefly losing power, did not sustain any damage.

We were very proud to see many of you come together to volunteer at the shelter, which later transitioned into a Distribution Center.

Although the Facilities and most of the City are in good shape, we are very mindful that many of our staff members and students have been displaced from their homes and that travel obstacles remain throughout the City of Houston.

Students will return to Stafford MSD on Thursday, September 7. 

All Principals, Administrators, Maintenance & Operations Workers and Counselors will return on Tuesday, September 5.

All remaining staff will return on Wednesday, September 6.

We understand that some of our Faculty & Staff may be in a difficult position to return. If that is the case, contact your principal or immediate supervisor immediately to inform them of your situation.

The Stafford Middle/Primary School Cafeteria will serve as an emergency shelter, beginning at 3 p.m. today (TUESDAY, AUGUST 29)

The American Red Cross and the Texas National Guard will be in charge of this shelter. They are the ones who will be responsible for taking donations and directing citizens who are interested in volunteering. Please contact them at 713-526-8300.

They are 100 Percent in charge of this process.

The campus is located at 1625 Staffordshire Road in Stafford, TX 77477.

We thank you for your understanding on this matter, and will direct all future questions regarding the Emergency Shelter to the Red Cross or the National Guard.

The Stafford Municipal School District will be closed for the remainder of the week, which ends on Friday, September 1. All campus activities will be canceled or postponed until after this week. That includes our football season opener on September 1.

Stafford MSD Superintendent Dr. Robert Bostic made this decision after multiple discussions with the Harris County Department of Emergency Management, the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management and superintendents from throughout the Greater Houston area.

Due to the Labor Day Holiday on Monday, September 4, School is set to resume on Tuesday, September 5.

Stafford MSD has lost power, and many of the citizens of Stafford have lost power as well.

Weather conditions continue to be extreme. We urge everyone to exercise caution and to follow weather reports as closely as possible.
