Peachjar – New Electronic District Newsletter & Flyer Communication Platform
Today the District launched a new electronic newsletter and flyer communication tool called Peachjar. The District's newsletter, "The Current" will continue to be delivered every Friday as an email that will also contain district approved flyers.
In addition to the weekly email, the district-approved digital flyers can be accessed on each school's homepage via the "peachjar flyers" button.
This green initiative will save our school tons of paper and reduce 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.
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 is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view school digital flyers.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts. When you receive your first digital flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
This system is used exclusively for distribution of The Current newsletter 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.

Lakeridge High School – Library
1235 Overlook Drive; LO
You are invited to attend the District Talented and Gifted (TAG) Information night on November 1, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. in the Lakeridge High School library. This presentation will provide a K-8 overview of the TAG identification process, services, and parent resources. There will be an opportunity for break-out sessions to engage with other parents and to ask general questions.
LO Teen Lounge at New Location
If parents are ever concerned about a student’s well-being, feel free to reach out to your principal. It is important to keep your lines of communication open and maintain strong partnerships between students, families, staff, and other resources.
SafeOregon also is an effective way to report a tip regarding safety threats or potential acts of violence to our students or schools.
(Students should also know that intentionally providing a false report is a serious offense.)
