Community Activities In and Around Baldwinsville


District to Begin Electronic Flyer Distribution through Peachjar
as of January 2, 2018   

 
The Baldwinsville Central School District is committed to educational excellence and ensuring that parents stay informed about important activities and events in the local area that enhance their child’s life. In an effort to improve parent and community engagement, the district will begin using Peachjar, an electronic flyer communication tool, to send digital flyers directly to our families, as of January 2, 2018. Paper flyers from organizations will no longer be sent home in backpacks.
 
On January 2, 2018 all district parents will be emailed a Welcome email from Peachjar explaining the program, and it will provide you with a user name and password so you can manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. Peachjar is a free, opt-out program, so you will automatically receive electronic flyers via email unless you opt out. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link that will be provided with every email.
 
Digital flyers will be emailed directly to parents who will see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Additionally, all flyers will be available on each school specific Peachjar website. All flyers will be preapproved by district administration before they are emailed to parents, and your email will not be used by Peachjar for any other purpose or shared with any other company or organization.
 
As of January 2, 2018, this Youth Activities page will be called Peachjar Flyer Distribution and it will direct you to your school’s Peachjar site to view flyers associated with your school.

For Organizations Wishing to Post Flyers

As of January 2, 2018 paper flyers will no longer be distributed in the schools of the Baldwinsville Central School District.
 
Starting January 2, 2018 the Baldwinsville Central School District will begin sending digital flyers directly to parents. The district has contracted with Peachjar to provide this service. Peachjar provides an innovative flyer management system that sends school-approved digital flyers directly to parents' inboxes and posts them online. Now parents can easily find and view flyers and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events. 
 
Peachjar charges organizations and program providers a fee for this service. The distribution fee is typically less than the cost of paper, printing and delivering flyers to the schools. You can find pricing information HERE.
 
Upon launch (January 2, 2018), you may register with Peachjar as a "Program Provider" and upload your flyer for distribution to your desired school(s). 
 
After your flyer has been submitted, it will be routed automatically to the school district office for approval, then emailed as a visually engaging image to all parents who have their email address on file in the school(s) database. Click here to learn more .
