Beginning February 1, the Fountain Valley School District (FVSD) will utilize an electronic flyer (e-flyer) distribution system, Peachjar, in an effort to improve communication, ensure a strong link between home and school, and to enhance community support and involvement in the schools. Every school, the district, and outside organizations will use Peachjar to distribute district-approved e-flyers to families districtwide. These e-flyers reduce staff time, save money, utilize technology, and are more environmentally conscious. In addition, these e-flyers are available for reference on each school’s website even after the email has been deleted.
