What is PeachJar?

Peachjar connects parents with valuable resources for their child.

PeachJar is a cloud-based communication platform streamlines school-to-home communication by distributing vital school updates and community resources directly to parents as digital flyers. 

More than 14,000 schools in 600 school districts, 20,000 community organizations, and 10 million parents in 40 states rely on Peachjar to deliver life-changing resources critical to student achievement and social-emotional health.

I'm Interested in Sharing a Flyer.

All materials being distributed to Harrisburg School District students require prior approval. Materials needing approval include, but are not limited to: brochures, flyers, signs, booklets, advertising inserts, etc. 

Paper materials from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.

Review our Distribution Guidelines for Submission.

  1. Distribution Guidelines:

    • Flyers must promote a social, recreational, or educational benefit to HSD students

    • Must not include offensive language

    • Must not be in conflict with Harrisburg School District policies, guidelines, or programs

    • Must not discriminate

    • Must be appropriate for specified grade level identified

    • Must include a local contact name and phone number

    • Fundraising outside the HSD is not permitted

  2. IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE SUBMITTING:

    • This service incurs a fee of $25 per flyer per school* - typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.

      • *To post fliers free-of-charge, you must qualify as a non-profit, charitable, or civic organization (UBI or Tax ID number required), AND the item, service, or event you are advertising is offered at no cost.

      • The Harrisburg School District does not have any part in this process. Please contact PeachJar for further details.

      • Flyers that advertise a benefit that incurs a charge or fee or promotes such services or events will cost $25.00 per flyer per school to post. Peachjar will waive its service fees for local community organizations posting to HSD schools when promoting a free event or activity that does not entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services. To receive the waived service fees, a community organization must contact Peachjar to make the request. 

    • To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. 

    • Flyers MUST BE submitted by Mondays at noon for next day delivery.

    • Flyers MUST HAVE a distribution date of a TUESDAY.

      • Flyers will be sent on Tuesdays directly to parents' inboxes and on our website.

Design Tips

  • Design your flyer with the intent of ⚠️️ grabbing their attention ⚠️with as few words as possible.

  • DO NOT put links on your PDF file - they are not "clickable".

    • You’ll have the ability to create a "button" to link to further information.

  • If your information is lengthy, make the first page eye-catching and put your “wordy” pages after that.

  • If your PDF is beyond four pages, just upload the first eye-catching page and link the actual document using a Google Drive link (be sure to set it to “anyone with the link can view.”).
