For Parents: How eFlyers Work
OVSD uses an electronic flyer (eFlyer) communication tool called “Peachjar.” To view District-approved eFlyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage. This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack saves time for our teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
Families, no action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from our service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password. This gives you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view school eFlyers. This system is used exclusively for eFlyer distribution. 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.
For Vendors & Community: The eFlyer Approval Process
OVSD works with Peachjar to send flyers (eFlyers) directly to families via email. Peachjar provides an innovative eFlyer management system that sends District-approved eFlyers directly to email addresses and posts them on District and school websites. Families can easily view eFlyers and have the option to sign up for activities and events. Peachjar charges a nominal fee for this service, but it will provide more direct, convenient and environmentally-friendly information to families.
NEW! Peachjar has added some really cool new features to the email that families receive! In an effort to make eFlyers even easier, they have have added the ability to click to do the following actions right from the email:
- Add to calendar
- View event map
- Download as a PDF
- Share on Facebook
- Share on Twitter
As an enrichment or community organization, you will register with Peachjar and upload your flyers for distribution to your desired school(s) or the District. Your eFlyer will then be submitted for approval by OVSD and then, if approved, emailed as a visually engaging image to all families that have their email addresses on file. Most families do participate in email service within OVSD.
PLEASE PLAN AHEAD AND ALLOW TIME FOR THE APPROVAL PROCESS.
To request flyer approval, you must be a non-profit organization, 501(C)3. If you meet this requirement, please do the following:
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment/Community Org
- Upload your flyer for approval
Once approved by the District, pursuant to Board Policy 1325 and 1325.1, your eFlyer will be emailed to all participating families and posted online. Paper flyers will no longer be distributed.
We thank you for participating in our new eFlyer distribution service and look forward to working with you!
