Like us, you may be tired of dealing with all the printed materials your child carries home from school.

In December we will be moving away from printed flyers to a new "electronic backpack" system. We have begun working with a company named Peachjar on this new system. Each school will have its own online backpack where school information, calendars, activity information from enrichment providers, and school letters will be posted.

Students’ backpacks will be lighter and family members will learn about school and community events and activities directly via email. This "green" initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. No more worrying what was lost between school and home either.

Provided we have parent/guardian email addresses, no action is required. We encourage all parents to go into their parent portal and post their email address if they have not done so already. Once we are set to launch Peachjar we will send parents a welcome email that includes a username and password. This is provided to give parents the opportunity to manage their account and flyer delivery preferences. It is not necessary to login to receive or view school-approved eflyers.

Emails are not the only way to tap into flyers and other materials, it will also be possible to click on the Peachjar button on a school's website to find and view flyers.
