About

Letter from the Web Editors

Welcome to lhsepic.com, the online platform for Lynbrook High School’s student newspaper! the Epic provides coverage of local events, offers student opinions on issues ranging from local to national levels and features a variety of community members. We strive to serve as a voice for Lynbrook students, parents and staff members through our publication. 

Due to COVID-19, we will not be publishing a monthly print newspaper, as we did in previous years, for the time being. All stories will be published exclusively on our website, along with a variety of accompanying photos and graphics. You can also view stories from previous years on our website and on Issuu, where you can read the stories in their original print layout. 

We are working harder than ever to provide the Lynbrook community with the most recent, relevant news, and we hope that you will find content from the Epic informative and enlightening.

If you would like to suggest a story idea or ask us any questions, contact us here.

Thank you so much for visiting our website!

Sincerely,

Diana Kohr and Priyanka Anand

2020-21 Web Editors
