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 link in the top row navigation menu on the home page of your school’s website.
Flyer Distribution Information for Families
Families should look for the Peachjar Quick Link in the Quick Links box located on the home page of your school’s website.
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:
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.
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 “firstname.lastname@example.org” 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.
The District must approve e-flyers for nonprofit entities, youth sports clubs, and other youth organizations for distribution through Peachjar. Local sports leagues or teams wishing to post fliers must be endorsed by the City of Mesquite Parks and Recreation Department and/or use City of Mesquite facilities for practice or play.
The guidelines for approval of electronic flyers to be posted through Peachjar are as follows:
Commercial advertising will not be approved.
Flyers from FOR-PROFIT entities will not be approved for distribution.
Flyers promoting any particular political interest, candidate, party, or ballot measure will not be approved.
All flyers must be submitted electronically through Peachjar for approval.
An organization should allow three business days for approval before flyers will be posted.
Any consideration for approval will be in accordance with policies and regulations at GKDA. [See also CQA]
Approval of an organization’s flyer is in no way a District endorsement or sponsorship of the organization’s activities.
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.
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.
