The Carmel Unified School District (CUSD) utilizes 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 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. 

    Peachjar Parent/Guardian Accounts

    Peachjar accounts are created based on email addresses provided to the schools by parents/guardians.  Peachjar accounts are not necessary to receive or view e-flyers, rather they are used to personalize how recipients want e-flyers delivered.    

    If e-flyers are not received from Peachjar, there are two possible reasons:

    • Peachjar emails are going directly to the spam folder. To prevent e-flyers from going into spam, add cusdflyers@peachjar.com to email contacts.  When the first e-flyer is received, be sure to click "always display images."
    • The desired email address is not on file. Please contact the school office to update or add email addresses. If an email address different than the one on file through Aeries is preferred, view the Peachjar Parent FAQs below for instructions on how to add email addresses to the Peachjar distribution list or to reset the password. 

    Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers.  Email addresses are not shared with anyone, including the community partners who distribute flyers through Peachjar. If you need additional assistance, please contact the Executive Assistant to the Superintendent's Office Michelle Goncalves at mgoncalves@carmelunified.org or by phone 831-624-1546 ext. 2021.

    DISCLAIMER:  Distribution of flyers through Peachjar does not imply endorsement by the Carmel Unified School District, its schools or staff, and is distributed in compliance with federal and state law.
