**It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian and student to read the district’s dress code policy (See SC&DC File: JICA) and to know what it is.
Eva R. Baca Elementary DOES NOT have a uniform policy. However, we do promote safety and a standard of appearance, which enhances the learning environment. Students are expected to follow the district’s dress code every day.

Athletic shoes are to be worn for Physical Education. Your child will need to bring athletic shoes if he/she wears any other type of shoes on their gym days. Your child will not be allowed to participate in PE without the proper shoes. Please be advised that this could affect his/her participation grade. Cleats, beach flip flops, and heelies are not to be worn at school. These guidelines will be enforced for the safety of our students. If your child wears inappropriate shoes, your child’s ability to participate in outside activities will be limited (kickball, four-square, tetherball, etc.).
Do not send students to school with expensive jewelry. Baca Elementary will not be held responsible for items that are lost or damaged. Earrings and other jewelry should be small enough that they do not pose a safety hazard. Any adornment such as chains or spikes that could be perceived as, or used as a weapon will not be permitted.
Hats or other head coverings may not be worn during the school day except for special days or for medical reasons approved by the Principal or the Principal’s designee. Sunglasses are not to be worn in the building. Please review these guidelines with your child. Remember safety is our primary concern.
