Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the IL State Board of Education has implemented a remote application process for work permits. This means students will no longer apply for a permit in the OHS main office. You can view the requirements and how to get started on the remote application process at: https://www.isbe.met/Pages/Work-Permits.aspx . As a reminder, students who are 14-15 years old must obtain a work permit prior to starting employment.
One of the required documents is a signed Principal’s Statement verifying a student is active and in good standing academically while school is in session (waived during summer months). To request a Principal’s Statement, students will need to contact the main office.
