ELECTRONIC FLYER DELIVERY - PEACHJAR
Lewis-Palmer School District will begin delivering school information and approved flyers from community organizations electronically with Peachjar on January 26, 2018.
These school-approved eflyers will be emailed directly to you from LewisPalmerSchoolDistrictfirstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, you will be able to view eflyers by clicking the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage (active January 26, 2018). This “green” initiative saves our schools tons of paper and reduces copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. If we have your email address on file, then no action is required on your part.
More information available here.

LPSD SCAM Alert
Last spring, Lewis-Palmer School District #38 became aware that a company called Touchdown Sports was representing itself as a fundraising organization working with our schools. This company was NOT and is NOT associated with LPSD38 in any way.
We are aware that this is happening again. The company name has changed, but they continue to use the phone number 817-809-4800.
If you get calls or requests regarding supporting an LPSD school, please call the school to confirm that the organization is actually working with the school.
Please share this information.
