Remind App

I use the Remind App account for my classroom. This is a great way for me to send out assignment reminders and imperative information. Both students and parents can sign up for the account by following the instructions below. All students are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to do this in order to stay up to date with information. All information is kept private and there is no way for me to ever know a student’s personal number or vice versa.


  1. Get out your phone.
  2. Create a new text message to the number 81010
  3. The message should say “@sdeflora”
  4. Press send.
  5. Follow all other instructions sent to you via text.

(if you are having trouble with 81010, try texting “@sdeflor” to (315)790-6994)

Canvas Website   Located on the Santa Fe High School webpage is my teacher website. This includes information about my class, tutorial times, weekly agendas, and all contact information. There will also be a monthly calendar that outlines what students are working on each day. Please use this site to your advantage to keep up with work or tutorials.
