ELECTRONIC FLYER DELIVERY INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
The Medford School District has launched a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” Peachjar replaces paper flyers. Each school now sends e-flyers to its families, and outside organizations can send approved e-flyers to families in the district. These e-flyers are also posted on each school’s website for at least one month. Look for the Peachjar link on your school’s website.
Each school can also put a few copies of the approved Peachjar flyers in the school office.
If you provided your email address to your school on your student’s contact information, a Peachjar account has been established for you. This is provided so you can manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to log in to receive or view e-flyers. If you did not provide your email address and would like to receive Peachjar e-flyers,go to www.peachjar.com and click on "Register" in the upper right corner.
This "Go Green" initiatve will save considerable paper each year. Additionally, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office and courier staff.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SCHOOLS AND PARENT CLUBS
Your school's Peachjar Site Administrator can upload flyers to the school's Peachjar account. You can send your flyers to the Site Admin for uploading.
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 eflyer (in English & Spanish) to email@example.com and list which schools you want it sent to.
