Community eFlyer Procedures
The district has contracted with Peachjar to provide electronic flyer delivery to our PCS families. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.You may register with Peachjar as an “Enrichment or Community Organization” and upload your flyer for distribution to your desired school(s).

Approval of your flyer does not imply PCS endorsement of any identified product and/or service. The District Qualifier will automatically be included on the flyer.
*** PCS reserves the right to revoke privileges from a community/agency program provider if, after distribution of a flyer, it is found to have been promoting an activity that does not align with the guidelines for distribution (e.g. activity as described in the flyer was not what actually occurred).To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the guidelines above. Flyers will be approved every Monday. If Monday falls on a holiday, flyers will be approved the Friday before. Flyers will not be approved during district designated holidays or breaks. During those times, flyers will be approved the day before the holiday and the first day that the district reopens. Please make sure that your flyers have been submitted at least one week before the event date. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed at our schools.
