WJCC Public Schools use an electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar”. To view school-approved eflyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage.
This “green” initiative will save our schools significant paper and copy costs. Most importantly, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff and volunteers.
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. To ensure smooth delivery of these emails, we suggest you add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
You do not need to login to receive or view school eflyers; however, if you would like to opt-out of receiving eflyers, you must login and select “opt-out.”
Please note that eflyers on Peachjar will replace paper distribution of flyers for WJCC schools, and if you opt-out you will not receive an email when eflyers are posted. You will, however, always have the option to see eflyers by clicking on the “Peachjar” button on the school’s website homepage.
If you do not receive an email, please contact your child’s school to ensure that your email address is in our student information system. If you don’t have an email, don’t worry, you only need internet access to view eflyers. Additionally, paper copies will be available in school front offices.
This system is used exclusively for the distribution of approved eflyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.

Process & Policy
On October 4, 2016, Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools began sending eflyers directly to parents rather than through student distribution. The division has contracted with Peachjar to provide this service and to manage the eflyer platform.
Peachjar provides a flyer management system that sends school-approved eflyers directly to parents’ inboxes and provides a platform to post those eflyers online. Now, parents can easily find and view flyers on any device and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events.
To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
- Visit peachjar.com
- Register as a Program Provider. (account type)
- Upload your flyer for approval
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to WJCC Public Schools. Division staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the below referenced policy.
Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school. Non-profit organizations that host completely free events and do not entice participants to join a fee-based program are eligible for free postings. If your non-profit organization fits these criteria please contact Peachjar’s Enrichment Department at (858) 997-2117 ext. 130 or email@example.com.
Following School Board Policy KF, approval will be granted only for materials from governmental organizations and from nonprofit community organizations regarding activities directly related to the instructional program of the Williamsburg-James City County School Division. Approval will NOT be given for materials that:
- are likely to cause substantial disruption of, or a material interference with, school activities;
- endorse or encourage the use of alcohol, tobacco or any illegal substance or illegal action;
- endorse or encourage any violation of the Standards of Student Conduct; and/or
- are obscene, profane or defamatory.
Eflyers approved for distribution will automatically indicate their source and will include the following statement: “These materials, and the activity described herein, are not sponsored or endorsed by the Williamsburg-James City County School Board.”
Division resources (e.g. paper, PA announcement, email, website, social media, etc.) may not be used to publicize outside activities or initiatives unless the program is co-sponsored by WJCC or a WJCC school.
