e-Flyers Distribution (Peachjar)
Shoreline Public Schools works with non-profit organizations and government entities to provide information to families about services and events by distributing flyers. We utilize a service called Peachjar to distribute flyers electronically. Flyers are distributed via email to families and posted on each school’s website and mobile app.
Parents/Guardians: You are already subscribed to the service with the email address you provided to your child's school. You can manage your subscription (including unsubscribing) by visiting Peachjar.com.
How to Submit a Flyer for Distribution through Peachjar
To have your non-profit organization's flyer submitted through Peachjar, you must follow the instructions and guidelines below. Shoreline Public Schools reserves the right to decline distribution if any guidelines are not met.
Community Organization Flyers
- Check to make sure your flyer meets our guidelines (below)
- Go to www.peachjar.com
- Register with Peachjar as a Program Provider (account type)
- Select desired schools for electronic distribution
- Upload your flyer to Peachjar for approval
Your flyer will automatically be submitted to district staff for review and will be approved or denied based on the guidelines below. Please allow up to five business days for the process.
*Free events, activities or services are not charged to use the Peachjar service. You can find instruction on how to request free posting of your free community event, activity or service HERE. Fee-based or fee-seeking events, activities or services are charged a $25 fee per school selected for distribution, which is less than the cost of printing and much more environmentally friendly. Details can be found at www.peachjar.com.*
Groups not wanting to utilize the Peachjar service may continue to have a paper copy posted in school community bulletin areas (if space is available).
Your school's Peachjar Administrator can upload flyers to that school's Peachjar account for distribution to just your school. Check your school's office to contact their Peachjar Administrator. If you would like to send a flyer to other schools, they must be sent from the District. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your flyer to other schools besides your own. Individual schools may post flyers for their site that promote information and events related to:
- The School
- Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTA, PTSA, etc.)
- Shoreline Public Schools Foundation
- Booster Clubs
- ASB Clubs
- Sports Teams
