    Flier Distribution

    Our district uses the Peachjar electronic flier communication system to communicate fliers approved by the district as having social, recreational, or educational value to students. The fliers are posted on our websites through the Peachjar button and parents receive email notifications of the posted fliers electronically via Peachjar. Parents can choose to opt out to Peachjar emails at anytime.

    School-sponsored fliers, including PTA/PTO events, can be posted online by school district staff as visually engaging images and emailed to parents (parents can choose to opt out). Parents can also access their child’s school fliers through the Peachjar button that is located on your school’s website.

    Schools will not post fliers for outside organizations without district approval.

    Flier procedures for non-profit organizations

      1. Go to peachjar.com and choose Register to set up your accountUse the drop-down box to identify yourself as an Enrichment or Community Organization."

      2. Make sure your flier has the following disclaimer on it: 'This activity is not sponsored or endorsed by the Orting School District.'

      4. Upload a PDF of your flier for approval.

    Peachjar will submit the flier to the Orting School District for review. Once approved, your flier will be emailed to parents and posted online for each school indicated. Peachjar charges for-profit organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper fliers to students.
