Lunch

Students may bring a lunch to school or purchase a hot lunch for $2.50.  Malcom has a computerized Point of Sale system so you can prepay by cash, check, credit card, or PayPal (Internet).  To use the PayPal system, simple log on to the CUSD school nutrition website at http://nutrition-capousd-ca.schoolloop.com/ and click on the Deposit Money and Funds link.  In the event a child forgets lunch or loses money, students will be offered crackers, fruit, etc. by lunch staff so that no child goes without eating.  The office does not loan money for lunch.

Leaving School

Students are NOT allowed to leave school early unless parents have signed the Early Dismissal Log in the office.  The office must be notified in advance if someone other than parents or those listed on the emergency card will pick up students.  Photo identification may be required if someone other than parent picks up a student.  Taking students out of school early is strongly discouraged and disqualifies students from perfect attendance.  Please try to schedule appointments late enough in the day to permit students to receive a full day of instruction every day.
