Work Permits During School Closure

Minor Work Permits During School Closure
Posted on 04/01/2020
UPDATE (7/6/20): This work permit process will remain in place until the building re-opens to the public (through summer). 


A message from Ms. Biggs about getting a work permit while school is closed: 

According to the Ohio Department of Commerce, if a minor has all necessary paperwork completed and is unable to get the permit processed due to school closure, the completed paperwork may itself stand in the place of the physically printed permit. Employers should keep the paperwork on file, just like they would the permit.

Students, please upon submission of your completed application to your employer, request that your employer either: 

1.  Scan and email the completed work permit application to XHS at;  or 

2.  Copy and mail a copy of the completed work permit application to Xenia High School, ATTN K Williamson, 303 Kinsey Road, Xenia, OH  45385.

The formal permit will be processed as soon as the school is reopened.

As a reminder, hour restrictions outlined in Ohio Revised Code Section 4109 are still in place for any week that was not a pre-planned school holiday (i.e., spring break) and the prohibited/hazardous occupation restrictions are still active.
