IHS Homecoming 2011 is Friday, October 7. Both Italy ISD campuses will be releasing early on Friday so everyone can join in on the celebration. A last minute change to the schedule—the Italy Gladiator Regiment Band will perform their halftime show before the game (7:00pm). This change is due to the need of more time during halftime for the homecoming court presentations.
The Stafford Elementary campus will release students at 12:20 and the Italy High School campus will release students at 12:30. Parade floats will need to line up at the High School behind the Field House beginning at 2:15pm.
