Martinsville did not have a JV team, so Patrick County JV scrimmaged boys against the girls. The boys won 100 to 40. Good Job everyone, we are very proud of you all! Scholastic Bowl team goes on the road next Monday to play GW Danville. Have a great holiday break and Good Luck next week!


As the semester draws to a close, this is a reminder of our school attendance policy. High school students are allowed 3 parent notes per semester and unlimited medical notes. Parents are encouraged to use their parent portal accounts to review student absences thus far. If unexcused absences are listed, parents may submit notes for those days if they have not yet done so. After the fifth unexcused absence (no parent or doctor note), parents will be contacted for an attendance conference. Complete attendance regulations may be found online in the school’s handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lauren Goad at the high school.

- There will be no Cougar Den today. We will have Cougar Den again next Tuesday, November 29th. Again-no Cougar Den today.
