As part of our efforts to be environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, enhance communication and maintain fiscal responsibility, Lockport City School District will transition from paper to electronic flyer delivery using a distribution program called Peachjar. Through Peachjar, each school, parent or booster group can send e-flyers to its families, and outside organizations can send approved e-flyers to families in the school system. Be sure to look for the Peachjar link on your school’s website, since e-flyers are also posted on each school’s website and on our mobile app.
If you provided your email address to your school, a Peachjar account has been established for you, and you should have received an email from Peachjar with your login information. Login information is provided so you can manage your account and flyer delivery preferences – you do not need to log in to receive or view e-flyers.
If your email is on file with your school and you are not receiving emails from Peachjar, the e-flyers may be going into your spam folder. To prevent the e-flyers from going into your spam folder, add “email@example.com” to your email contacts. To prevent not seeing the images in the email, when you receive your first e-flyer be sure to click “always display images.”
Contact your school office to add or verify your email address to your student(s) eSchool profile!
Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved communication. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Lockport City School District has designated parent email addresses as “directory information” as defined under FERPA. If you choose not to receive school-approved communication via email, you have the right to unsubscribe to these emails. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.
Lockport City School District works with community organizations to make information about activities or services and enrichment opportunities available to families. Our district will cooperate with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar.
Outside organizations that would like to request flyer approval should follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
Is there a fee?
Community organizations and enrichment providers are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when they post a flyer to promote/announce an activity or event with a participation fee. This also happens when the flyer describes an event that is held without charge for the purpose of enticing attendees to buy products or services or to participate in a fee-based program or activity. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost they paid in the past to copy and deliver fliers to schools.
Community organizations may post a flyer without charge through Peachjar (subject to school/district approval) provided the flyer contains information about a community event that is held without charge to attendees and does not lead to a participation fee or serve as an enticement to buy products or services.
Schools, school parent organizations, and booster clubs can post and distribute their flyers, newsletters and important information by going directly through the school’s Peachjar website. If a flyer describes an activity or event with a fee, both of the following criteria must be met in order the flyer to be posted without charge:
What flyers meet the district’s criteria?
To meet the district’s criteria, flyers should contain information about activities that benefit our students or offer programs or events that are youth-related or related to youth education. Approved flyers will not disrupt the educational process, violate the rights of others, include material that is defamatory, invade the privacy of others, infringe on a copyright, or be obscene, vulgar or indecent.
No commercial publications will be posted or distributed unless their purpose is to further a school activity, such as graduation, class pictures or class rings or to offer a pre-approved enrichment opportunity to our students.
What must appear on the flyer?
The following information must appear on any flier distributed: the sponsoring organization’s full name, address, telephone number, website address and email address.
What happens once a flyer is posted?
Once your flyer is posted to a school’s Peachjar site, parents can view your flyer through the Peachjar link on the school website. Additionally, your flyer will be delivered to all parents’ email addresses as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents will immediately see your flyer and be able to click through to your website.
To post a flyer, organizations just register at www.peachjar.com, select the desired school(s) and upload your flyer. Your flyer is then automatically submitted to the district for approval. Once approved, your flyer is delivered to parents and posted online.
