On Friday, October 14, 2016, Desert Sands Unified School District launched a new electronic flyer communication tool called Peachjar. In the past, information on community events and school activities has been sent to parents via paper flyers in children's backpacks or given to students to bring home.
This new "green" initiative of eliminating flyers will reduce the use of paper. It is food for the schools and good for the planet. In addition, posting flyers electronically will remove a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
Parents and Guardians:
NO ACTION IS REQUIRED ON YOUR PART! You will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password. You do not need to login to receive or view the flyers. The username and password are just a means for you to manage your preferences, if you would like to do so.
We suggest that you add email@example.com to your email contacts. When you receive your first electronic flyer, be sure to click "always display images". This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will NOT be shared or used for any other purpose. Peachjar requires a current guardian email address on file. You can update your email address directly in Home Access Center. Go to www.dsusd.us/HAC and click ‘HAC Overview’ for instructions on updating your email address.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure that you are well informed about programs, activities and events.
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.
To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (account type)
- Select desired school(s) to receive flyer
- Upload your flyer for approval (file size must be smaller than 6 MB)
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards below. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
Please email any questions on the Peachjar system to firstname.lastname@example.org.
