How is distance learning at Poteet ISD?

“Very well. Some students are doing everything online, while some are doing everything by hard copy. Some are doing some of each,” said Camarillo.

He is most proud of how well and how fast the faculty and staff have responded.

“They took the circumstance and ran with it without complaint or reservation. They have been very creative and very open to trying anything that will help our students.”

Camarillo, staff and administration miss the students and look forward to the day they can come back.

To the Poteet High Schoool seniors of 2020, Camarillo would like to say, “Hang in there. We do not know how long this closure will last, but we are hoping not so long that we cannot have a graduation ceremony. They have earned it and we know regardless of what happens, they are ready to make their mark on this world. Aggies Fight!”
