News & Info for Elementary Families
The North Allegheny School District utilizes the electronic Thursday E-Blast to provide parents with information relevant to elementary programs. Each week, parents of elementary school students will receive an email containing the listing of all fliers available on this webpage. By selecting the appropriate date below, parents may view each flier electronically. Up to six weeks of information will remain on this page at a given time.

Thursday E-Blast is Now Peachjar
On January 11, North Allegheny School District launched a new electronic flyer communication tool called Peachjar. Through Peachjar, each school can send eflyers to families, and outside organizations can send approved eflyers to families.
Follow the links below to view the flyers for each specific elementary school.
- Bradford Woods Elementary
- Franklin Elementary
- Hosack Elementary
- Ingomar Elementary
- Marshall Elementary
- McKnight Elementary
- Peebles Elementary
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. You do not need to log in to receive or view school digital flyers.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, 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.”
The eflyers will be sent directly to parents’ email inboxes weekly on Thursdays, and will also be posted on school websites for easy access. All eflyers can be accessed from each school’s home page. Eventually, Peachjar may be implemented at the middle and high schools as well, not just K-5.
If you have any questions, check out Peachjar’s FAQs for parents.
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.
Upon launch, you may register with Peachjar as a "Program Provider" and upload your flyer for distribution to your desired school(s). Peachjar charges a fee for this service for external community organizations.
After your flyer has been submitted, it will be routed automatically to the District for approval, then emailed as a visually engaging image to all parents who have their email address on file at the District.
Community Free Flyer Policy
Peachjar's Community Free (Free Flyer Posting Program) was created to allow local community organizations to distribute their digital flyers at no cost when promoting a free event or activity that does not encourage participants to join a fee-based program, or include the opportunity to purchase products, services, or food and beverages. Peachjar limits organizations using Community Free flyer distribution to one posting every 30 days for up to 25 schools.
Local community organizations can continue to promote various free programs by consolidating their flyers into a single, multi-page flyer. Also, organizations such as cities can have multiple Community Free accounts that are department-specific, and create Community Free accounts for their local branches (e.g. libraries).
Organizations interested in requesting a Community Free account must contact Peachjar directly by phone, “Contact Us” web request, or via online chat. Upon receipt of the request, Peachjar will ask the organization to provide the following information that is used to evaluate its qualification for a Community Free account:
- To which school district(s) do you wish to distribute your flyer?
- What is the exact number of schools to which you wish to distribute your flyer?
- Are all events you distribute flyers about free, or do some encourage payment of future fees, have paid services, or include vendor participation? (Some organizations may need both a standard paid account and a Community Free account to meet their needs.)
- What is the email address associated to your Peachjar account?
- Please provide a copy of your flyer for review.
Requests for exceptions to this policy will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Peachjar reserves the exclusive right to make all determinations regarding the acceptance of each Community Free flyer posting request, and the authorization of each organization requesting a Community Free account.
