  • Barnstable Public School Students; Private School Students; and Student Summer Residents:

    1. Employment Permit Application forms (promise of employment forms) can be downloaded at www.mass.gov. Read, print, and complete the entire application (14-15 year olds must have a Doctor’s signature).

    2. Either email the completed application to Robin Connors or bring it into the Barnstable High School Main Office. We are available Monday-Wednesday from 7:00 am-1:00 pm.
      Please remember to wear your face masks.

    3. Non-Barnstable High School Students, please submit the following:
