Forms and Flyers
Work Permits are required for high school students.
Please see your Guidance office for forms. Mifflin County High School students need only to stop in the Guidance Office to apply for the permit. Other Mifflin County students (those attending charter or cyber schools) need to apply with a birth certificate or other form of ID that can be copied and kept with the application files. Be aware that the forms have been revised by the Department of Labor with instructions on the reverse side of the actual permit for students and employers. For 14 and 15 year olds a “Parental Acknowledgement of Minor’s Duties and Hours of Employment” will need to be completed by the parent and employer to be returned to Guidance with the “Application for Work Permit”.
If you have any questions, please call the Mifflin County High School Guidance Office at 717-242-0240 ext. 8510.
2013-2014 Program of Studies
The 2013-2014 MCSD Program of Studies is now available. Within this booklet, students and parents can find information regarding courses offered, course descriptions, Honors/AP/Dual Enrollment courses, scheduling questions, course weighting information, etc... Students can register online through their Skyward account from Tuesday afternoon, March 5 until Friday afternoon March 22. Once students have selected their courses, they will need to print them out as they are seen on Skyward, have their parents sign the printed list, and turn them in to the Guidance Office by Friday, March 22. Students, if you are an athlete, are interested in the Dual Enrollment program, or have any other significant schedule requests, please feel free to write notes to your counselor on your selected courses paper. Your counselor will do everything she can to make those requests happen. Please contact your counselor if you have any questions regarding course registration for next school year.
