flyer approval & distribution process:
Effective January 31, 2019, as part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we are transitioning from paper to electronic flyer delivery through Peachjar.
Peachjar provides an innovative flyer management system that sends school-approved E-flyers directly to parents/guardians and displays them on each school website. Parents can easily find and view flyers and take immediate action to sign up for activities and events.
School sites will no longer distribute paper flyers, but instead send out electronic flyers digitally. This includes flyers from the school as well as flyers from any of the school's parent groups. Flyers from other approved community organizations will be distributed through email and posted on school websites after approval by the district.
PARENTS AND GUARDIANS:
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You DO NOT need to log in to receive or view digital flyers.
To ensure smooth deliver, we suggest you add firstname.lastname@example.org
to your email contacts. When you receive your first digital flyer, be sure to click “always display images.” We want to let you know that Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.Flyers will also appear on our schools' websites. You can access them by simply clicking the Peachjar button on their homepage or from the list below.
Why am I not receiving flyers to my inbox through Peachjar?
First, check with your school front office to make sure your email address is current in INow. If your email is current, Peachjar emails may be getting caught in spam filters on your email account. Placing @peachjar.com on your "trusted address" list may resolve this problem.
How can I register to receive Peachjar emails for a school?
Parents and community members are welcome to enroll for updates via Peachjar for any of our schools. Simply open peachjar.com, and create or update your account as needed. Click “Notification Preferences” under the “My Account” menu. Search by state and school district, and add whichever schools where you would like to receive flyers.
You may also choose how often you wish to receive updates on the same page.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once payment is submitted and the flyer is approved, it will be emailed to all parents of the schools you have selected and posted on the selected schools’ websites. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed at schools.
Through Peachjar’s platform, your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office for approval. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the guidelines listed above. Peachjar charges a fee for this service ($25 per flyer per school), which is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school. Please note that Peachjar provides a bulk discount.
