Distribution of e-flyers

  • Woodridge School District 68 delivers school information and approved flyers from community organizations electronically using a service called Peachjar. This “green” initiative saves our schools tons of paper and reduces 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.

     

    Detailed information for both parents who want to receive e-flyers and outside community organizations who want to send e-flyers is found here.

        Current Parents:

        If we have your email address on file, then no action is required on your part. If your child has moved to a new school in the district, you will receive eflyers from the new school. If you have not provided your email address, please do so to avoid missing important information. Delivery changes can be made in the 'Notification Preferences' section of your user account.

         

        New Parents:

        If we have your email address, then no action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from our service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password if you do not already currently have an account. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to log in to receive or view school eflyers. If you have not provided your email address, please do so to avoid missing important information.

         

        To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “school@peachjar.com” to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

         

        Troubleshooting Tips:

        • Please log in to your account and click Notification Preferences to be sure you are not set to 'Unsubscribe'
        • Ensure that your settings are set to receive flyers 'Daily'
        • Add the email address school@peachjar.com to your email contacts to be sure our emails are not being marked as spam.

         

        This system is used exclusively for distribution of district- and 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.

      Peachjar for Community

      • The paper flyers we used to send home are now only sent electronically. This "Go Green" initiative saves loads of paper each year. Additionally, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers and office staff.

         

        Peachjar manages this service on behalf of our schools using the latest electronic communication technology. Once your flyer is posted to a school's Peachjar site, parents can view your flyer online on the school website and app. Additionally, your flyer will be delivered via e-mail to all parents visually. This means parents will immediately see your flyer and be able to click through using call-to-action buttons. Watch a video testimonial.

         

        Why Peachjar? Getting your message in front of parents can be difficult. Peachjar flyers make reaching parents easy and effective. 

         

        Approval to distribute flyers is a community service and does not imply endorsement or sponsorship.

         

        Who can post flyers?

        Community, educational, charitable, recreational, or similar groups may, under established procedures, advertise events pertinent to students’ interests or involvement. All advertisements must (1) be student-oriented, (2) prominently display the sponsoring organization’s name, and (3) be approved in advance. Woodridge 68 reserves the right to decide where and when any advertisement or flyer is distributed, displayed, or posted.

         

        No commercial publications shall be posted or distributed unless its purpose is to further a school activity and there has been prior approval by the school district. Material from candidates and political parties will not be accepted for posting or distribution except when used as part of the curriculum.
