School Uniforms and Dress Code

All students must adhere to the District’s dress code for the 2022-23 school year.

The student dress code policy has been updated for the 2022-23 school year. San Antonio ISD students, with some campus exceptions, are no longer required to wear a uniform. Students are allowed free-dress, although any student may still opt to wear a uniform. The dress code is new this year for students in early childhood, elementary, and academies. Middle and high school students already have the option for free dress.

The new policy guidelines can be found here:

From the district website:

Welcome to Barkley-Ruiz!

This school year, we're continuing our school year with the Learning Management System (or learning platform) called Canvas. The great thing about this program is that it allows teachers, parents, and students a better way to communicate with each other and work together toward academic success. Students will access Canvas through Classlink.

We know we are facing occasional difficulties as we learn this new platform, together, so we want to make sure that everyone gets as much help and guidance as needed.  Please know that we're here to make this as smooth a transition as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to email our librarian, Mrs. Spicer, and she will work to either help you solve any problems you are facing or find the person who can help you. 

Additionally, SAISD HelpDesk has extended their hours to assist families, staff and students who are facing technology concerns, questions, or difficulties. They can be reached at (210)244-2929 or you can email them at

Thank you!
Your Barkley-Ruiz Family

Principal's message

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Welcome back to another amazing school year at Barkley-Ruiz Elementary School. I am thrilled to spend another year with our students. At Barkley-Ruiz, the focus of the campus is to meet the academic needs of students by identifying their individual learning style preferences as well as expand student choice.

We, at Barkley-Ruiz, have not only provided teachers with extensive targeted and collaborative professional development to address student instructional needs, we also began implementing Project Based Learning into our classrooms to allow students more opportunities to get more hands-on learning, student-centered activities, and ownership for what they create.

Each classroom is equipped with resources to meet the needs of visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic learners as well as technology to differentiated learners. Teachers have the tools necessary for data analysis and interactive lessons. Additionally, students have the tools to learn technology skills imperative to compete in today’s job market.

Barkley-Ruiz offers multiple programs and clubs for our students, which include music, art, Robotics, Bluebonnet Reading Club, Choir, Yearbook, Guitar Club, Recorder Club, Peer Assistance & Leadership (PALS), and Safety Patrol.

Last year, we piloted the SAISD Supper Program. Now, all students receive three, free meals per day: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. We also provide sharing tables in the classrooms and cafeteria, to reduce waste and allow students to take additional food, as needed.

We value all your support and engagement, so please feel free to contact our school if you have any questions. Thank you for allowing us to educate your child(ren), and we look forward to the learning and experiences we will share throughout the year.

Jacqueline Ibarra-Lanford
