Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Repetto. It is my honor and great privilege to be the principal of this incredible school. Repetto is a place where parents, teachers, staff, and students work together to provide the best possible learning environment.
Repetto is known for its high academic and social expectations for each one of our students, but at the same time, you will find a high level of support as we strive to prepare our students to be ready for college and career. Repetto teachers work collaboratively as they lay the foundation for learning to ensure that all our students:
family and community during the 2017-2018 school year.

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:
Parent-Teacher Conference - We are scheduling parent conferences (September 25 - Oct. 2) online once again this year. Please read the flyer below for important information.
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.
Valet Drop-Off Lane is Open- Grandridge Avenue becomes extremely busy during the start and end of the school day. Repetto School offers families our Valet Drop-Off service between 7:30am – 7:55am each school morning. The valet lane is located on Grandridge, near the back of the cafeteria and the side of the school.
The valet lane is not for parking. Parents should remain in their cars. Please make sure your child’s backpacks and other belongings are ready so he/she can exit your vehicle immediately upon pulling up to the valet lane.
We are in need of both parent and student (in grades 4th through 8th) volunteers to make this vital service successful. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the office. Thank you.
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.

Repetto PTA: We regret to inform you that Repetto PTA’s charter has been revoked by the California State PTA until further notice. There were issues with tax filings dating back to 2012 and until these issues are resolved and a new charter has been approved and instated, Repetto PTA cannot conduct any business. Some PTA sponsored events such as the college fair and book fair may be cancelled. However, most of our PTA-subsidized school activities such as field trips and Class of 2016 promotion activities will not be affected. Parent volunteers are working diligently to restore our PTA to normal operations and minimize impacts to programs and activities. We have met with representatives from both the Alhambra Council PTA and 1st District PTA and are confident that these issues can be rectified and our PTA charter can be restored as soon as fall of 2016. Thank you everyone for your patience.
Box Tops for Education - Don’t forget to keep collecting Box Tops for Education. Every Box Top you turn in to the office to raise money for the school.

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.
