Skyward

What is Skyward?

Skyward is a student information system that allows students, staff, and parents to input and access grades, calendars, homework, and more. Skyward Family Access is available to families of students in grades 6 through 12. Take Me to Skyward.

How Do I Sign Up for Skyward?

E-Flyers

We’ve Gone Green!

Camas School District uses an electronic flyer distribution program called Peachjar, which replaces paper flyers. Through Peachjar, each school can send e-flyers to its families, and outside organizations can send approved e-flyers to all families in the district. These e-flyers are also posted on each school’s website for at least one month. Look for the Peachjar link on your school’s website.

How Do I Sign Up?

All parents and guardians are automatically signed up to receive PeachJar e-flyers when their student registers to attend Camas School District.

Help—I’m Having Trouble!
  • If you’re not receiving emails from Peachjar: Your email address might not be on file with your school or they’re ending up in your spam folder. To make sure your email address is on file, ask your school office to add your email address to the District Contact Form. To stop e-flyers from becoming spam, add school@peachjar.com to your contacts.
  • If you can’t see images in the PeachJar emails: This means the emails are going into your spam folder. To stop e-flyers from becoming spam, add school@peachjar.com to your contacts. When you receive your first e-flyer, click “always display images.”
  • If you still need help, visit PeachJar’s Parent FAQ page or contact the public information officer.

You can also visit the FAQ below for other instructions on adding your email address to the Peachjar distribution list or resetting your password.

Flyer Distribution Process

Instructions for Schools and Parent Clubs

Your school’s Peachjar Site Administrator can upload flyers to the school’s Peachjar account. You can send your flyers to the Site Admin for uploading. The Site Admin is also in charge of assigning uploading privileges to others. Please contact that individual if you would like to request uploading privileges. Once uploading privileges are assigned to you, an auto-generated email is sent to you with your username and password.

IMPORTANT:  Read the CSD Flyer Approval Policy and Procedure

  1. Visit the Peachjar Registration Page
  2. Register as an Enrichment Provider (account type)
  3. Upload your flyer for approval
Instructions for Outside Organizations

Our district cooperates with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar to district families. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.

IMPORTANT:  Read the CSD Flyer Approval Policy and Procedure

  1. Visit the Peachjar Registration Page
  2. Register as an Enrichment Provider (account type)
  3. Upload your flyer for approval
  4. Your flyer will automatically be submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards described below. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
