Looking to eliminate backpack clutter, save trees and create a more efficient system of distributing information, the Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) has partnered with Peachjar to provide electronic flyer distribution for its families.
Beginning Monday, October 3rd, FUSD will utilize Peachjar to create digital flyers sent directly to parents via email as visually-engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Additionally, all flyers will be available through links posted to each school’s website. Parents will be able to click to register their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events. By using this new system, FUSD expects to eliminate the need to print hundreds of thousands of copies of flyers per year. Additionally, the school district will no longer incur the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
Peachjar provides this service at no charge to FUSD. Community partners who wish to distribute flyers to FUSD families will be asked to visit Peachjar’s website and pay a small service fee to have their information uploaded and distributed. This cost will typically be much less than the expense to print hundreds or even thousands of copies.
Parents and guardians will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that will include a username and password. This is provided to give families the opportunity to manage their accounts and delivery preferences. It is not necessary to login to receive or view school eflyers. This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. E-mail addresses will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Families without access to email will be able to view all flyers at their school’s front office. Visit www.peachjar.com for more information.
