All Public Entities

  1. Visit peachjar.com and create an account as a Community Organization.

Important Notes for Public Entities

  • This service incurs a fee of $25 per flyer per school* - typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.

  • *To post fliers free-of-charge, you must qualify as a non-profit, charitable, or civic organization (UBI or Tax ID number required), AND the item, service, or event you are advertising is offered at no cost.

  • The Harrisburg School District does not have any part in this process. Please contact PeachJar for further details.

  • Flyers that advertise a benefit that incurs a charge or fee or promotes such services or events will cost $25.00 per flyer per school to post. Peachjar will waive its service fees for local community organizations posting to HSD schools when promoting a free event or activity that does not entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services. 

  • To receive the waived service fees, a community organization must contact Peachjar to make the request.

District Staff

  1. You either already have an account with your K12 email address, OR you need to create one using your K12 account (most likely if you started employment after 2018). If you're not sure, visit peachjar.com. If you think you may have an account already, click Forgot Password to reset your password and get into your account - again, it's your K12 email address.

  2. Either way, email JoAnne.VerMulm@k12.sd.us to request upload rights AFTER you're sure you have an account set up.

  3. Be sure to include which building(s) you need rights for - coaches with students and the middle and high school levels, for example, would need access to all three schools.
