Coming Soon to Your Fingertips
No more lost forms and balled-up flyers in the bottom of the backpack …
Suffolk Public Schools will soon be moving away from printed flyers to a new Electronic Backpack system. Each of our schools will have its own web page where school information, calendars, information from enrichment providers, and school newsletters will be posted.
The best part is that these e-flyers will also be sent directly to your email — right to your fingertips.
The school division is working with a company called Peachjar on this new green iniative. Moving to e-flyers will save our schools tons of paper, reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars, and allow our staff to spend less time making copies and more time with students.
Just before Thanksgiving, parents will receive a welcome email from Peachjar. They will provide you a User Name and Password, giving you the opportunity to manage your account and e-flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to Peachjar to receive or view school e-flyers. You can use the school’s Peachjar web page just as easily.
This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared be shared or used for any other purpose.More information about this initiative will be available soon. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed.
