This is the image for the news article titled Work Permit UpdateEffective July 7, 2020, Lakota students in need of signed work permits are asked to visit their respective high schools to complete the paperwork. Previously, the COVID-19 shutdown shifted this process to Lakota's Central Office.

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