Peachjar Replaces Traditional Tuesday Folders - November 28

We are excited to announce the district-wide implementation of Peachjar, an innovative flyer management system that sends district- and school-approved digital flyers directly to parents via email. This ‘green’ initiative will save paper and reduce copy costs for our schools and community partners.


Please note, with the implementation of Peachjar, mass paper copies will no longer be provided to teachers or staff for distribution in elementary school Tuesday Folders. As a result, elementary school Tuesday Folders will be re-purposed to their original intended use—the dissemination of classroom materials such as reading logs, worksheets and other academic resources. All other non-instructional materials will be delivered electronically via Peachjar.


Peachjar will be live for all campuses beginning Tuesday, November 28, 2017. By default, all parents will be opted-in to the system. No action is required on their part, provided their email contact information is up to date with their child's school. If parents have children in more than one school, parents will automatically receive digital flyers from each campus. As with most email delivery platforms, parents will have the option to unsubscribe from the Peachjar service. However, parents should keep in mind that by opting out, they may miss information and announcements pertaining to their child and his/her school events.


​Peachjar will be used exclusively for the electronic distribution of district- and school-approved flyers. Parent email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.


Flyers will also be posted on each campus website, and flyers will also be accessible via the district's mobile app. Parents can easily find and view e-flyers and take immediate action to sign up for activities and events. Additionally, parents can forward e-flyers to friends and share them on social media to boost participation.


A number of school districts in our area including Leander, Pflugerville, and Round Rock use Peachjar with much success. We believe our parents will also find Peachjar to be a convenient and easy-to-use tool.
