Did you know that in October 2014 Westvale started using Peachjar to reduce the amount of flyers being sent home?

“Great news, paper flyers are going green! Beginning October 1, 2014, many of the paper flyers that schools in Jordan School District have been sending home will be sent electronically to your email inbox via a new system called Peachjar. These electronic flyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button on your school’s website. This ‘green’ initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copying costs. In addition, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant burden from teachers, office staff, volunteers and students. Schools will still provide some hard copy flyers.

No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do NOT need to login to receive or view electronic flyers.

This system will only be used for distribution of approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. If you have any questions, please contact your school. Thank you for helping us save time, money and lots of trees!

As a reminder, announcements for school events will continue to be sent home as paper copies with your child. These events may also be advertised as an e-flyer along with the commercial flyers that are posted on Peachjar.”
