Work Permits

When hired, complete your work permit application (don’t forget to add your social security number and phone number). Be sure your parents and employer sign it. Then bring it in to the counselor or email it to her (guidance@foothillsschool.net)  to obtain your official work permit. All work permits must be renewed during the first week of every school year and anytime students get a new job.
