Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
It is my sincere pleasure to announce that the entire Repetto community and the City of Monterey Park have reason to celebrate and be proud. On September 18, 2017, ABC News and other local news affiliates reported that Money magazine released its top 100 spots that offera healthy economy, affordable housing, and a high quality of life.
The City of Monterey Park ranked as the 3rd best place to live in America! Money magazine described it as a small city that is a "cultural hub" and "foodie haven", with many recreational opportunities.
In addition, Monterey Park schools provide excellent educational opportunities with a 92.3% high school graduation rate. A special thank you to you, the parents, for your continued support as a valued partner in your child's academic success.

We need parents’ feedback to help support you and your child’s education. At our next parent LCAP meeting (date in March - TBD), we will be asking you two vital questions:
meeting to give us your input. We also encourage you to participate in the district LCAP survey for all stakeholders. Starting February 6th, the online survey can be accessed on the district website: www.ausd.us. Thank you in advance for your participation!
LCAP Expenditures (LCFF Funding)
This school year, our students and parents are reaping the benefits of our LCAP allocation in the following ways:
Pesticide Warning: See below
Instruments: Forgotten musical instruments can be dropped off in the school office. Students have been instructed to check in the office before music class. The office staff will NOT disrupt classes to remind your child.
Parking: The circular driveway is for buses and authorized vehicles. The parking lot is reserved for Repetto staff ONLY! Thank you for understanding.
Online Emergency Information: Please log on to the Parent Portal to update/complete your child’s online emergency card TODAY. Parents can use the same account created in prior years. Parents of new students will need to link their account to their students’ using their access ID and password. If you do not an access ID or Internet, please see one of the school community coordinators in the office for assistance.
School Site Council: The role of SSC is to serve as the school community representative body to determine the school’s instructional focus and related categorical resources. SSC consists of five school representatives and five parent representatives. For this group to serve effectively and legally, we need one parent representative to serve until the end of the 2017-2018 school year. There are a total of six meetings per year. Parents can self-nominate and will be elected by the parent members of SSC at our next meeting. If you are interested, please contact our Instructional Specialist, Kathy Taggart.
Coffee Tea Chat with the Principal: We invite all Repetto parents and guardians to join us each month for a cup of coffee or tea at an informal get-together. This is the time for you to join the principal, assistant principal and the instructional specialist to discuss district/site goals and address school concerns. We hope to see you at our next Coffee Tea Chat at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, 10/27/17.
Campus Supervision: Students should not arrive to school prior to 7:30am when campus supervision will begins. For safety reasons, students should be picked up (or walk home) immediately after dismissal. Note: The circular driveway is reserved for buses, district staff and authorized vehicles of afterschool programs. Please do not use the faculty parking lot and in consideration of our neighbors, please do not block or park in their driveways.
Tardies: Students must be class (not just on campus) by 8:00am or they will be marked tardy. Because Repetto School is located in a residential area, there will always be excessive traffic and parking difficulties in the mornings. Please make sure to allow ample time for students to get to their classrooms on time.
Drop-Offs and Pick-Ups: During morning drop-offs, all students will enter either through the kindergarten gate or the valet entrance near the cafeteria. TK students will be dismissed in the afternoon through the side gate located near the kinder playground and kindergarten students will be dismissed through the kindergarten gate. Students in grades 1-8 will be dismissed through the main gate located by the office. Students checked out of school early due to doctor/dentist appointments will need a note upon returning to school.
Cafeteria: Parents can pay for school meals in the office (cash or checks payable to “Repetto Cafeteria”) or online through our district website: www.ausd.us. The
full price for breakfast is $1.50 for lunch is $3.00. School menus and online applications for Free and Reduced Meals are on the district website. Annual
renewals for Free and Reduced Meal status must be completed by 9/21/17.
Short Thursdays and Minimum Days: We have early dismissal times EVERY Thursday. Dismissal times have changed this school year. Please make sure students are picked up on time. The bell schedule and the list of minimum days were sent home with your child on the first day of school and can also be found on our school website.
Support AEF: Alhambra Educational Foundation will be participating in the 12th Annual Shopping Extravaganza at Citadel Outlets on Saturday, September 23, 2017. Proceeds will support AEF and benefit all AUSD students. Join us for a day of fun- filled shopping and exclusive deals. More information online at aef4kids.com.
Attendance Works: show that elementary students with good attendance read well by the end of third grade and middle school students with good attendance pass important courses. The benefits of good attendance continue throughout life: high school students stay on track to graduate, college students earn a degree, and adults have successful jobs.

California Accountability Model and School Dashboard
The California Accountability Model and School Dashboard is California’s new accountability and continuous improvement system. This system provides information on how local educational agencies and schools are meeting the needs of our state’s diverse student population, based on a concise set of measures. The dashboard takes the place of our school’s past API score and contains reports that display the performance of local educational agencies (LEAs), schools and student group on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, weaknesses and areas that need improvement. For more information, go to cde.ca.gov and click on California School Dashboard Reports.
