Lexington County School District One works with community
organizations to make information about not-for-profit activities
or services and enrichment opportunities available to families.
Years ago, Lexington One sent home various fliers the way most
schools did — in backpacks. These fliers reached students and,
sometimes, parents. However, that process created a lot of extra work for staff
and teachers who spent time each week counting
them all out. Obviously, the process wasn’t environmentally friendly
A few years ago, the district moved to an online resource of
electronic fliers, which fixed some of the problems but did not do a
thorough job of getting information to our students’ families.
This year the district implements a solution that should make sure
information gets to our students’ families, does not burden office
staff and teachers, and also helps in the district’s efforts to go green with the help of a company called
Peachjar. A nice side benefit is that non-profit organizations,
school organizations and others will save paper
and the costs associated with copying fliers.
The district makes approved fliers available as electronic fliers through
Peachjar for your
The district does not distribute fliers directly to students.
Here’s a short informational video.
Peachjar manages this service on behalf of the district and
Lexington One schools.
Approved fliers, delivered to parents by email, keep parents
informed about upcoming school activities, programs and events and
community or youth activities, programs and events.
In households with multiple caregivers, fliers don’t always make it
to the right parent or guardian.
With this system, family members have immediate access to fliers
online and the ability to sign up to receive fliers instantly via
Parents will receive a welcome email from the service
provider, Peachjar, that includes a username and password. To ensure
smooth delivery of this communication, please add
firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts.
If you do not get an email from Peachjar, the district does not have
a good email address for you in PowerSchool. You should contact your
child’s school and ask them to update your PowerSchool information.
Lexington County School District One allows approved information or brochures from nonprofit (501C3)
organizations (Boy Scouts, the YMCA, Girl Scouts, Lexington One
Community Coalition, etc.) — providing their material meets our
standards and has been pre-approved by the Communications Office.
We do not approve the distribution nor Web publication of a flier by a “for profit”
organization even if that organization is offering something “free”
to our students.
We also do not approve fundraising efforts from nonprofit groups.
No commercial publications will be posted or distributed unless
their purpose is to further a school activity, such as graduation,
class pictures or class rings or to offer a pre-approved enrichment
opportunity to our students.

Peachjar manages flier distribution on behalf of our schools using
the latest electronic communication technology and charges a fee for
this service that is typically much less than han the cost you paid
in the past to copy and deliver fliers to schools.
Once your flier is posted to a school’s Peachjar site, parents can
view your flier through the Peachjar logo on the school website.
Additionally, your flier will be delivered to all parents’ email
addresses as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents will
immediately see your flier and be able to click through to your
To post a flier, organizations just register at www.peachjar.com,
select the desired school(s) and upload your flier. Your flier is
then automatically submitted to the district for approval. Once
approved, your flier is delivered to parents and posted online.
