TUESDAY FOLDERS & PEACHJAR E-FLYERS
TUESDAY FOLDERS: Effective November 28, 2017, instead of each child taking home a separate folder of paper communication and fliers from the school and/or the school district, Lake Travis ISD has implemented Peachjar, an innovative flyer management system that sends district- and school-approved digital flyers directly to parents via email. This ‘green’ initiative will save paper and reduce copy costs for our schools and community partners.
With the implementation of Peachjar, mass paper copies will no longer be provided to teachers or staff for distribution in elementary school Tuesday Folders. As a result, elementary school Tuesday Folders will be re-purposed to their original intended use—the dissemination of classroom materials such as reading logs, worksheets and other academic resources. All other non-instructional materials will be delivered electronically via Peachjar.
By default, all parents will be opted-in to the system. No action is required on their part, provided their email contact information is up to date with their child's school. If parents have children in more than one school, parents will automatically receive digital flyers from each campus. As with most email delivery platforms, parents will have the option to unsubscribe from the Peachjar service. However, parents should keep in mind that by opting out, they may miss information and announcements pertaining to their child and his/her school events.
Peachjar will be used exclusively for the electronic distribution of district- and school-approved flyers. Parent email addresses will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
Flyers are posted on each campus website, and flyers are also accessible via the district's mobile app. Parents can easily find and view e-flyers and take immediate action to sign up for activities and events. Additionally, parents can forward e-flyers to friends and share them on social media to boost participation.
