Athletic Department News
Hello all from Epping High School Athletics. Punxsutawney Phil has forecasted six more weeks of winter – with the rate of snowstorms we have been experiencing, Phil seems to be right. Our basketball seasons are winding down, and the state tournaments

The department would like to send a reminder out to all spring sport parents to make sure physicals are up to date for the upcoming season. All students wishing to try-out must have a current physical, within the last two years, on file in the nurse’s office.
Spring athletes can obtain physical/consent agreement form in the main office or, from Mr. Averill.
