LHS staff is ready to help employers comply with California State Department of Education and Department of Labor Work Permit requirements if your business is hiring students for the summer season. Work permits will be valid from June 10th through August 20th. Student employees who are under 18 must pick up the application for a work permit from the LHS Safety office. The application is completed by the student and parents and then the employer signs it before the student returns it to the LHS Safety Office. LHS will issue a permit based on Board of Education policies, for students who had a minimum 2.0 GPA and an acceptable attendance record, and it generally takes one business day to issue. Students return to the Safety Office to sign their permit and then deliver the work permit to the employer before their first day on the job. For question contact LHS at 257-2143.
