As of December 15th, Freeport School District has launched a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar”! Peachjar posts school flyers online as visually engaging images and emails them to all parents. Parents will access school flyers by email and through the Peachjar button (pictured below) that is placed on schools’ website home pages.
This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs significantly. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
For families who do not have internet access, schools will place several flyers for pickup in the school office. If a flyer is considered essential communication, it may still be sent home in paper form via backpack.
Peachjar is free to our schools
because community partners pay a small service fee to post and distribute their
flyers (typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers).
All community organizations that want to distribute flyers must use Peachjar, where they will register and upload flyers to be approved by the
district. For more information on distributing community flyers, click here

Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events!
