In August of 2014, Jenks Public Schools will begin using Peachjar as our electronic flyer communication system throughout the District. Instead of sending home paper flyers with students in PK-6, parents will now have access to the Peachjar site where flyers willl be posted online. Why this change? Many times the Thursday folders are so overloaded with flyers, important school information can be easily missed. By using Peachjar for flyers from outside the District, Thursday folders will be utilized for only school business. Also, the online flyers will have the capability of embedding links, making it easier to register or get more information on an event. Each school site will have its own Peachjar site where parents can find and view flyers. This site can be accessed through the Peachjar button that will be found on the District website home page, as well as each site’s homepage. JPS is excited about this new system of communication and believe these efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility .
