Arrangements for Mrs. Lisa Martin have been made. Due to COVID, there will only be a graveside service at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Oakland Cemetery in Clarksville. She will be at Hardwicke Funeral Home in Clarksville and can be viewed Tuesday. Her family is so thankful for the acts of kindness displayed during this time. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of one of very own, Mrs. Lisa Martin. Mrs. Martin began working at Scranton High School in 1999 as an English teacher. Throughout her 21 years at Scranton, she also taught social studies, journalism, and was a dyslexia specialist. Anyone that knew Mrs. Martin can attest that she was a hard worker and had the kindest soul. She will be greatly missed and forever hold a special place in the hearts of our Scranton Rocket family. Our condolences go out to her family, friends, colleagues, and students. We will post arrangements when they have been made.

We do encourage this as each physical costs the school $30, but if you choose to use MedExpress we will cover the cost. MedExpress is the only provider we will cover the cost of the physical. MedExpress is located at 511 Main Street in Russellville. If you have any questions contact your coach.

We will have two buses going to Russellville that day, the first bus will leave from the gym at 9 AM and the second bus will leave at 4 PM. Students are encouraged to ride the early bus if possible. Student athletes must have a physical each year and must have a form obtained from their coach or the high school office signed by their parent. This form must accompany them to the doctor.
