Owatonna Public Schools is excited to announce that the district will now be using Peachjar, a digital flyer management system. Peachjar provides an innovative flyer management system that sends school-approved eflyers directly to parents’ inboxes and posts them on schools websites, making it easier than ever for parents to learn more about events, activities and programs offered to students.
Parents/guardians are notified via email when flyers are posted each Wednesday, and can then access the flyers through the email link or via each school's Peachjar page, listed below. School Peachjar pages are also accessible via the Peachjar button on each school’s homepage.
You can find your school flyers by clicking on the links below:
Owatonna Middle School
Owatonna Senior High School
Owatonna Alternative Learning Center
We invite community partners to register with Peachjar as the first step in uploading their flyers to be distributed to our schools. After your flyer has been submitted, it will be routed automatically to the Communications and Public Outreach Specialist for approval. All flyers will be posted weekly and parents will be notified by email via Peachjar.com.
Please contact Shay Baumbach, Communications and Public Outreach Specialist at email@example.com or 507.444.8638 for more information.
