Coming in 2019: Peachjar
Hermantown Community Schools improves school-to-home communication by implementing Peachjar to distribute school flyers directly to families digitally.
The Hermantown School District is committed to educational excellence and ensuring that parents stay informed about important activities and events that enhance their child’s life. In an effort to improve parent and community engagement, your District will be using Peachjar to send digital flyers directly to our families. This new distribution protocol will begin on January 22, 2019.
Peachjar employs a unique information distribution system that sends flyers directly to parents who see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Additionally, all flyers will be posted to each school’s website. Parents will be able to click to register their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events.
By using this new system, Hermantown Community Schools expect to eliminate the need to print roughly 336,000 sheets of paper per year. Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the staff burden and costs associated with paper-flyer distribution.
