Procedures for Sending Fliers to Parents

Our district cooperates with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials by email via Peachjar to NVUSD teachers or parents. NVUSD includes Napa, American Canyon and Yountville. NVUSD does NOT include St. Helena, Calistoga or any other part of Napa County.

To use Peachjar, you must create an account for your organization.

To request flier approval, follow the steps below.  Once approved, your flier will be emailed to all parents and posted on the Peachjar account on the homepage of the selected school(s).  Paper fliers from outside organizations will not be distributed to NVUSD parents or students.  

  1. IMPORTANT:  Read the NVUSD Flier Approval Policies.

  2. Create your flyer and save in PDF format (see more instructions in Flier Policies section). Spanish translation is required for fliers intended for parents. Fliers must be ADA-compliant.

  3. Visit www.peachjar.com

  4. Register as an Enrichment Provider (account type)

  5. Upload your flier for approval (file size must be smaller than 6 MB)

Your flier will automatically be submitted to the district office.  District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards described below. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically less than the cost to copy and deliver paper fliers to each school.

NOTE:  If you are a parent group at one of our NVUSD schools, these instructions do not apply.  Click here for instructions.

Sending Fliers to Teachers Only

If you would like to send information to NVUSD teachers, you can select "for District Staff" during your flier uploading process. Material sent to teachers should be information about possible student workshop or field trip opportunities, or availability of inexpensive or free quality classroom materials.  Fliers for teachers only are not required to include a Spanish translation.


About ADA Compliance/Accessibility

Peachjar's digital content complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 A & AA standards. These are the guidelines the Office of Civil Rights requires for school district digital content.

What does that mean? Emails sent to parents through Peachjar, and each school's Peachjar flier page, are now to be compatible with screen readers and other assistive technologies.

How to make your flier ADA compliant: After uploading the flier, the text from your flier will be copied into an editable text box for you to review and correct as needed before sending the flier. Your flier should meet the following requirements:

  1. Be 1-4 pages in length (required). Learn more about how to send longer fliers.
  2. Contain clear and legible text in size 12 font or larger.
  3. Not be a scanned or copied document. You may be required to copy/paste or type the text into the description box.

Note that images and scans cannot be read by screen readers.

Additionally, please note that embedded links within your flyer will no longer be supported. Learn more about including links with your flyer.


Paper Fliers

If an organization wishes to provide paper fliers, the fliers must first be approval-stamped at the NVUSD District Office.  The organization can then give copies of the stamped fliers to the school office, where they will be made available at or near the front counter.  No paper copies will be given to teachers or staff to distribute to students for taking home.


Posters

Posters from outside organizations to be mounted for display on school grounds must first be approved by the school's administration and each copy of the poster initialed.  Posters for school sites do not need to be approved by the NVUSD District Office.


Flier Policies for Outside Organizations

All fliers to be distributed must:

  • Support the basic educational mission of the district, directly benefit the students, or be of intrinsic value to the students or their parents/guardians.

  • Be in PDF format and smaller than 6 MB.

  • Contain font sizes not less than size 12.

  • Contain the name and contact information of the sponsoring entity.

  • Be submitted in both English and Spanish in the same document.  Fliers can have multiple pages, and you will only be charged for one flier. Please provide an accurate translation-- be advised that Google Translate is not sufficient, and your flier will not be approved.   > Information about translation services
