Dear CUSD families, we strongly encourage all parents to register and update their Parent Portal account.  Through the use of the Parent Portal, parents have the ability to be notified of their child’s new teacher, update student emergency records, print their child’s report card, and download important documents directly from the portal.

Beginning this summer, having an updated Parent Portal is more important than ever because it is how you will be notified of your child’s new teacher for the 2017-2018 school year prior to Opening Day (8/22/17).  Information regarding your child’s new teacher and room number will be available for you to access through the Parent Portal on August 21, 2017 after 3 pm.

To update or activate your Parent Portal, simply log onto https://sites.google.com/a/capousd.org/parent-and-student-portal/ where you will find directions for updating your Parent Portal account. Please contact the school to obtain your students' permanent ID and Verification password.
