Important Message From Our Food & Nutrition Services Department

On Friday, May 12, Mesquite ISD’s Food & Nutrition Services Department was hit by the worldwide Cyber Attack. As a result, all cafeteria software was affected, causing issues with student accounts. Our Technical Services team is working tirelessly to resolve the problems, but in the meantime, we want to keep you informed on how this situation impacts students and parents. Rest assured that student information and credit card information was not compromised. But in protective measures to keep information from being compromised, the outcome resulted in limited communication between outside systems and our registers on each campus.

Student meal account balances are not available at this time.

  • The online payment system, School Café, has been turned off.
  • Parents will not see accurate information in their School Café accounts
  • Cash or check payments may still be made at the register
  • Free & reduced meal applications must be processed manually; online applications are not available at this time

Mesquite ISD will keep you informed of any updates to this situation. Our top priority is ensuring that all students continue to receive healthy meals while at school. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve these issues.

 

PEACHJAR ELECTRONIC FLYERS

Flyer Distribution — Information for Families 

Mesquite ISD uses an electronic flyer distribution program called Peachjar.  The district does not distribute paper flyers to students from non-district entities. 

Through Peachjar, each school can send e-flyers to its families, and outside organizations can send approved e-flyers to all families in the district.  These e-flyers are also posted on each school’s website for at least one month.  Families should look for the Peachjar Quick Link in the Quick Links box located on the home page of your school’s website. You can find a link to your school's website here. Just click on the school name.

If you provided your email address to your school, a Peachjar account has been established for you, and you should have received an email from Peachjar with your login information.  This is provided so that you can manage your account and e-flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to log in to receive or view e-flyers.  If you did not provide your email address and would like to receive Peachjar e-flyers, contact your school office to add your email address to your child's contact information.

If you are not receiving emails from Peachjar, there are two possible reasons:

  1. Your email address is not on file with your school.  Contact your school office to add your email address to your child's contact information. You can also click the FAQs link below for other instructions on adding your email address to the Peachjar distribution list or resetting your password.​

  2. The Peachjar emails are going into your spam folder or you can't see the images in the email.  To prevent the e-flyers from going into your spam folder, add “school@peachjar.com” to your email contacts.  When you receive your first e-flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.

Instructions for Outside Organizations

To request e-flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your e-flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online.

  • Review the Guidelines for e-Flyer Approval on this page.
  • Visit www.peachjar.com
  • Register as an Enrichment / Community Organization (account type).
  • Upload your flyer for approval.

Your e-flyer will be automatically submitted to the Mesquite ISD Communications Department. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the district policy and the standards below. Peachjar charges a fee for this service.

Should an outside organization’s flyer be denied, the posting organization will be notified electronically and a refund will be provided as an account credit after 30 days. This delay enables the district to “undo” the action and subsequently approve a new flyer without the need for the external organization to repeat the uploading and checkout process. Peachjar will expedite processing an account credit upon request.
