Welcome To Main Street Elementary

Main Street Elementary Front of School


School Dismissal

Please be reminded that for the safety of all students Main Street Elementary School is a closed campus, so as much as possible we minimize the number of adults on campus throughout the day.  At dismissal only parents of Kinder, TK, ETK and select parents of students in special education are allowed on campus.  

  • ETK, TK and kindergarten students are picked up from the main yard.  Parents can enter the campus through the gate on 52nd Street furthest East, and we ask that you wait until the dismissal bell rings to approach your child's class.
  • 1st through 5th grade students are dismissed through the gates on 52nd Street.  1st and 2nd grade students will be dismissed at the gate furthest West on 52nd Street.  Parents can wait for them at the 52nd Street gate.

We appreciate your cooperation with this policy.  Thank you.

Regular school dismissal is at 2:23 p.m.  Early dismissal on most Tuesdays is at 1:19 p.m.  Please check the monthly parent newsletter for early dismissal and school holiday dates.

Positive Behavior Support

As part of our Best Behavior initiatives we model, teach and reinforce the following:





Students have also learned how to STEP when they encounter conflict.  STEP is a 4-step process for solving problems:


  1. S- Say the problem without blame
  2. T- Think of solutions that are safe and respectful
  3. E- Explore consequences
  4. P – Pick the solution where everyone wins

Before using the STEP process to solve a problem it is very important for children to be calm.  One way to help students calm down is to have them:


1) Stop,

2) Say how they feel, and

3) use a calming down strategy,




Some calming down strategies are breathing, counting to 10, or using positive talk.  Positive talk might sound like, “I can solve this problem” or “Everything is going to be okay.”


Calming down and solving problems is not something students automatically know how to do.  We have to teach them and give them opportunity to practice often. When your child has a conflict with someone outside of school, please help them practice calming down and using the STEP process to solve the problem.

Learning to solve conflict is an important life skill students can use now and forever! 

Thanks for Visiting!

Attendance Matters

One of the most important ways in which you can help us is in making sure your child has good attendance. Our goal is that every student be in school at least 96% of the year. This means no student should miss school more than 7 days throughout the year.


  • Perfect Attendance 0 Absences
  • Good Attendance 1-7 Absences
  • At Risk Attendance 8 – 14 Absences
  • Poor Attendance 15 or more Absences


Also, please remember that 3 tardies are the same as 1 absence. Students with good attendance learn more and are more likely to graduate from high school. So, please bring your child to school every day and on time.  If you have questions feel free to call 323-232-4856 or send a message via email to Ms. Trejo at jlt2912@lausd.net or Ms. Rodriguez-Chavez at emr9387@lausd.net.
