Spring Sports Athletics Registration

All students interested in participating in a spring sport at FHS must register online through our Athletic Registration program for parents/students. Please visit the www.fpsct.org website, click on “Schools”, “Farmington High
School”, then scroll down to Athletics, and then Athletics Registration. By selecting a team under the 2020 Spring Athletic Registration, and completing the registration process, you will have submitted all the required athletic forms.
You must still have a current physical examination on file with FHS. The physical form is available under the “Forms for Students” section of the Farmington High School website. The fee to participate in Athletics this year is $100. A check made out to FHS Athletics should be brought to the first practice.

FHS CAREER CENTER:

Parents of current juniors and seniors:

Please find information about the CareerConn 2020 Occupational School Expo at this link. CareerConn is a great way for students to learn about different post-high school options available to them. Farmington High School will be providing a bus to the expo for students who are interested in attending. Space is limited, so we will be operating on a first come, first serve basis. Students who would like to attend must visit the Career Center (room 161) to sign up for the event and pick up a parent permission form. Please encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity.

Please save the date for the Farmington Chamber of Commerce's Annual Pizza Tasting on Tuesday, March 24th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Farmington Gardens. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Chamber's Scholarship Fund for Farmington High School students. An announcement will be made once the list of attending pizza restaurants is finalized."

Please let me know if you have any questions or need any other information.
