Bedford City Schools has adopted an electronic flyer communication and delivery tool called “Peachjar”. This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. In addition, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
COMMUNICATION FOR PARENTS
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from our service provider (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 school digital eflyers, but you must log in if you would like to “opt out” of this delivery service.
Please keep in mind that this electronic method of school flyer delivery replaces all paper distribution of flyers at your child’s school. By opting out, you may miss pertinent information pertaining to your child and other school events.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add BCSD@peachjar.com
to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.
To view school-approved eflyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage.
