Greater Albany Public School District uses an electronic flyer distribution program called Peachjar. Peachjar replaces paper flyers. Through Peachjar, each school can send eflyers to its families, and community organizations can send approved eflyers to all families in the district.
This is an effort to save paper, reduce copy costs, and help parents keep better track of these messages.
If you provided your email address to your school on your student’s contact information form, a Peachjar account has been established for you. You will receive an email from Peachjar with your login information. You do not need to login to receive or view e-flyers. The login is provided so you can manage your account or choose delivery preferences. You can opt out of receiving the messages. Fliers can always be viewed on the school websites for at least one month. Look for the Peachjar link on each school website.
If you did not provide your email address and would like to receive Peachjar eflyers, let your school office know to add your email address to the district contact form or you can sign up at Peachjar by clicking “register” in the top right corner.
If you are not receiving emails from Peachjar, there are two possible reasons for this:
Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
