During the September 13, 2019, EPHS football game, there was an incident in which there was uncivil behavior among EP Nation students. Therefore, on September 20, 2019, the EPHS Administrative Team held a meeting with representatives of EP Nation. Jonathan Bucher, principal, and Chris Skaugen, director of athletics and activities, spoke with EP Nation students about the importance of tolerance, safety, and inclusion. The EPASD administrative team wants EP Nation to be present, loud, and proud; however, we cannot condone segregation based on age or class standing, physical violence, verbal abuse, vulgar language, or substance abuse, particularly at district-sponsored events. We encourage our EP Nation to work together and with district administration to ensure all students have fun and celebrate school and community spirit in a tolerant and safe environment.
