School Supply Lists 2015/16

Update Parent Portal

If you have not already done so, parents must create a Portal Account which will allow you to update your student’s emergency information in the District’s database. Most importantly, the Parent Portal will allow current Malcom families to confirm their Re-Registration for the 2015-16 School Year.  After reviewing/confirming your demographics on your Portal, parents will print out a Data Confirmation page and return it with your 1st week packet re-registration information.

The Portal Account is a different system from School Loop, and requires its own set-up.  Information regarding creating a Parent and Student Portal account can be found by copying and pasting this link into your browser: http://portal.capousd.org or by going to the district’s main website and under Parents, select Parent Portal/Annual Re-registration.  Step-by-step directions are available on this same webpage, too.  To create an account, three pieces of information are required: 

1)     Your home phone number of record in District’s database

2)     Your student’s 7-digit ID number

3)     Your student’s Verification Pass Code 

Note: if you need your student’s ID number and Verification Pass Code, please call the front office at 949-248-0542and we’ll provide it for you.
