Flyer Distribution and Approval
Federal Way Public Schools works with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students. Notification of those activities is now distributed electronically via Peachjar.
Besides lessening the paper load on schools, this is a more environmentally friendly method and embraces our students’ parents’ growing use of electronic devices and apps.
What are the requirements for distributing flyers?
In order to distribute flyers to parents, your organization must be a non-profit 501(c)3.
In addition, ALL flyers to be distributed must include the following disclaimer using exact wording in no less than size 12 font:
“"This event is not sponsored by Federal Way Public Schools and the District assumes no responsibility for the conduct or safety during the event. In consideration for the privilege to distribute this information/hold this event, the organization shall defend, indemnify and hold Federal Way Public Schools harmless from any and all claims, injuries, damages, losses or suits including attorney fees arising out of or in connection with this event, except for injuries and damages caused by the sole negligence of the district."
Flyers must also:
- Be in PDF format.
- Contain font sizes no less than size 12.
