What's happening at Metro

Orientation Paperwork - A parent/guardian needs to fill out all mandatory orientation forms for their student before school starts. Some are hard copy MBA-related forms, and then there are electronic forms through NHPS that need to be completed. You will fill out the hard copies at orientation, and you should visit www.nhpsorientation.net before school starts to fill out the electronic paperwork.

Counseling/Scheduling Concern Form- This form may be used to submit concerns to your school counselor regarding schedules, college and scholarship preparations, and more. Please note that the beginning of the year is always a busy time for everyone, so to make the transition smoothly and promptly into this school year, please submit your schedule concern to Mrs. Legere and Ms. Pitkin by SEPTEMBER 16, 2022 by filling out this form.

Orientation Letter - Orientation letters are being sent to students in the mail. Click here to view the pdf.


Work Permits - To have working papers issued by the Office of School Choice & Enrollment, the student must have an official Promise of Employment letter. The Promise of Employment letter must detail the minor’s legal name, the rate of pay, hours and a specific list of tasks they will be performing and be on the company’s letterhead. The Enrollment Office will not accept forms missing information. Please note, students must be hired prior to requesting working papers.


  • The parent or the minor child must email the Promise of Employment letter along with proof of age (if the child is not currently enrolled in a New Haven Public School) to NHPSRegistration@new-haven.k12.ct.us

  • Once received the Office of School Choice & Enrollment will process the signed and stamped working paper to the parent or minor child. This should be presented to the employer for record keeping and compliance. Typically, working papers are processed and available within 24 to 48 hours.

  • A staff member from the Office of School Choice & Enrollment will contact the student once the working papers are complete and ready for pick-up. 


As the Enrollment Office is closed to the general public at this time, all items may be picked up at the security desk of 54 Meadow Street. The envelope will be sealed and bare the name of the minor child to be employed.
