Peachjar Digital Flyers
Information for Parents & Guardians
We send our flyers directly to your email inbox instead of creating paper flyers that get often got lost in backpacks and overlooked. These eflyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button that has been placed on each school’s website homepage. You can also find flyers on our new mobile app by clicking on the Peachjar icon. This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, it is our belief that this paperless delivery of school flyers will ensure important information gets delivered directly to you in a more efficient manner.
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from “Peachjar” (the service provider) that will include a username and password. The name and password are provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences, if you choose to. However, you do not need to login to receive or view eflyers.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “email@example.com” to your email contacts. Note: add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your contact list just as written; DO NOT change it to the name of your school @peachjar.com. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
If you do not receive an email from Peachjar, it could mean your email address is not on file with your school, or there is an error with the address. Please see your school office to inquire.
Note: This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
Submitting Flyers for Distribution
LVJUSD parent groups and school-related organizations may use Peachjar to distribute flyers, at no cost. Each school’s Peachjar site administrator can upload flyers to the school’s Peachjar account. Please contact that individual if you would like to request uploading privileges.
All flyers must adhere to LVJUSD flyer policies.
Note: If a school will be having an event open to the entire community, schools may send e-flyers to the district office to send to other schools. Send your e-flyer to Sarah DeGroat at email@example.com with a list of schools you want it sent to, and why it would be beneficial for their families to receive your flyer.
Information for Outside Organizations
LVJUSD cooperates with community groups and non-profit organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar. 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.
Peachjar manages eflyer distribution on behalf of our schools using the latest electronic communication technology. Once your flyer is posted to the school’s Peachjar site, parents can view your flyer through the logo on the school website. Additionally, your flyer will be delivered to all parents’ emails as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents will immediately see your flyer and be able to click through to your website to sign-up.
Peachjar charges a fee for this service (only for those outside organizations with participation fees) that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver flyers to each school. More information on Peachjar’s Service Fees.
All requests for flyer distribution by outside community organizations must first be approved by the Community Engagement Department. To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be posted online and emailed to all parents/guardians at the school(s) you have selected. (Note: paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.)
Steps for Flyer Approval:
