PEACH JAR GUIDELINES 

PEACHJAR ELECTRONIC FLYERS FOR PARENTS
In an effort to make the process of distributing community flyers easier for our district staff, VUSD utilizes Peachjar, an e-flyer distribution service.

Flyers that were once sent home to parents will now be delivered electronically to your inbox. These e-flyers will also be available for viewing by clicking the Peachjar button/logo on the home page of your child’s school website. There is no charge to parents and families to receive e-flyers from the school Peach Jar system.

This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for helping us save time, money, and lots of trees!

REGISTERING TO RECEIVE FLYERS
-Go to www.peachjar.com to create an account.
-Click on “Parents” icon.
-Follow instructions for creating a user name and password. This will allow you to change your preferences as your child goes through our K-12 schools.

If you have students at more than one school, you will be able to select multiple schools from the drop down menu.

Once you create and account and establish your preferences, e-flyers will come directly to your inbox.
