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.
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 “firstname.lastname@example.org” 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.” If you are not receiving eFlyers please contact your school office to add or verify your email address to your student(s) eSchool profile!
FERPA COMPLIANCE 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/guardian 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. Parents/Guardians can manage their delivery preferences or opt out at any time by clicking on the 'Unsubscribe' button at the bottom of each flyer they receive. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.
Flyers can be found by clicking the Peach icon located in the yellow footer on each school website. They can also be viewed on your phone using our mobile app and clicking the Peachjar icon. Direct links to each schools Peachjar flyers are listed below!
Community Organization Information
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.
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment/Community Organization. (Account Type)
- Select your desired schools.
- Upload your flyer for approval.
- Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards below. Once approved, your flyer is deliver to parents and posted online.
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.
Peachjar’s Community Free Flyer Program (subject to school/district approval) will cover the fees for one Community Free flyer every 30 days for organizations promoting a free charitable program, service or resource where children are the direct beneficiary.
All flyers submitted for free distribution will be reviewed by Peachjar for verification of eligibility and must comply with the following requirements:
- The program, service or resource directly benefits children and does not require participants to qualify, has no enticement for future fee-based programs, and does not serve the purpose of fundraising, collecting donations or allow for the purchase of products or services.
- The organization is not nationally recognized and physically resides within the boundaries of the school district it wishes to distribute to.
- The organization is not receiving fees or revenue from vendors participating in the event.
- Submissions are limited to one flyer distribution to one school district every 30 days. If a community organization wishes to distribute to more than one school district or more frequently than every 30 days, the community organization can choose to distribute a standard flyer, subject to Peachjar's fees.
Peachjar reserves the right to determine final eligibility. Contact Peachjar for pricing and discount information before uploading your flyer!
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:
- The activity/participation fee must be payable to the school, school district, or the school’s authorized parent group. AND The activity must be conducted by school/district staff, students or parent group volunteers.
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.
All requests from groups or individuals to make information about activities or enrichment services available to Lockport City School District students through this website will be referred to Peachjar.
