Flyers from Outside Organizations

The Orchard Farm School Community: Events & Activities group on Facebook is designed to create awareness around opportunities & events to keep kids active and families informed. This group is intended to increase the Orchard Farm School District's environmental responsibility while decreasing the number of flyers going home in backpacks.
Flyers or promotional materials will be submitted to and approved by the Superintendent of Schools. The group is designed as a service to community members. All flyers must include the following DISCLAIMER: "(insert the organization's name) is neither associated with nor endorsed by the Orchard Farm School District, its administration and staff or the Board of Education." Questions can be directed to Trina Becktol (tbecktol@ofr5.com) or April Bryant (abryant@ofr5.com) with the Orchard Farm School District.
