Our schools have transitioned from paper flyers to a more eco-friendly option: Peachjar. Peachjar is an electronic-based flyer management system that allows district staff and community partners to generate, upload, and distribute flyers directly to students, parents, and school staff. As part of our ongoing efforts to move towards a more environmentally-friendly school district, Peachjar will help promote a paperless initiative, while additionally assisting to streamline our network of communication between our school staff, parents, and community partners.
This "green" initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.
Flyers come direct to your inbox- no more hoping they come home in a backpack!

As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.

Once the flyer is uploaded to Peachjar and it appears on school websites this will act as approval.

No paper copies will be given to teachers or staff to distribute to students for taking home.
