Signing up for Capistrano Unified School District's Community Messages for Schools


School News: CUSD schools are transitioning away from traditional listserv emails because it was not a reliable method and many messages were being delayed up to 3-4 weeks by the product or email providers. We will be sending messages through School Messenger. Community members who wish to stay up to date with school messages should follow the steps below.  Parents of students in the school should not sign up for this service as doing so will result in double messaging.  As an additional service, community members and parents may also download the CUSD app on iTunes and Google Play to receive community messages via notifications.


District News: CapoTalk Publication/Mailing List - Sign up to receive general communications from the District.
