Instructions for External Community Organizations

Community eFlyer Procedures

The District has contracted with Peachjar to provide electronic flyer delivery to our HSD families.  Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school and streamlines the process for District staff.

You may register with Peachjar as an “Enrichment or Community Organization” and upload your flyer for distribution to your desired school(s). 

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the District Office. The flyer will be reviewed and approved or denied based on the guidelines below. Flyers will be approved every Thursday. Flyers will not be approved during district designated holidays or breaks. During those times, flyers will be approved the day before the holiday and the first day that the district reopens. Please make sure that your flyers have been submitted at least 10 days before the event date. If approved, your flyer will be emailed to all families and posted online.

To get started:

  • Visit www.peachjar.com 
  • Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (account type)
  • Upload your flyer for approval
