What's happening at Metro
School Picture Orders - 9th, 10th and 11th graders took their school pictures on Oct 24 and Nov 1. Your pictures are available for viewing at https://www.photographybyroman.net/fall-portrait-landing-page.
When it asks for an online code, use the student's ID number.
For discounted pricing, order your pictures before November 18. All orders will be delivered to the school and then distributed. 12th graders already paid for their portraits, and they will be delivered to the school. Seniors will be able to reorder more portraits once they receive finished packages.
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.
