Updates as of March 24, 2021
- The amended law allows in-person, remote and electronic methods that are acceptable to the school or school district issuing the work permit. As such, all permits may be completely by scans and email.
- The amended law removed the yellow and pink paper distinctions. The act now uses a different means to distinguish work permits for youth under age 16 versus those 16-17 years of age. Landscape for under 16 and portrait for 16-17 years of age.
Minimum Wage Law:
Current Youth minimum wage is: $8.20/hour
$3.67/hour for tipped employees.
(TIPS Must = difference in min wage between $3.67 and $8.20 or employer MUST top you up to $8.20/hour)
Please review the list of work activities that you cannot perform as a youth employee for your own personal safety and view the websites below for more Teen Worker Health and Safety Information.
If you have youth employment questions please see Mrs. Rondello.

Groves Clubs & Activities for 2020-2021
We are hopeful that all students participate in one or multiple school related activities during their Groves experience. Co- and extra-curricular activities can be a great source of enjoyment for students. Aside from pleasure, students can develop leadership skills, become valuable team members and provide a sense of belonging to their community. More information may be found on Clubs & Activites webpage. Groves students are invited to view the list of clubs and activities offered this school year and are encouraged to get involved and stay involved.

Groves Attendance Information
Attendance Phone: 248-203-3500, Press Option 2.
To report your student’s absence, tardiness, or any attendance concern, please call the Groves main number at 248-203-3500, option 2.
If your student needs to leave early, please send a note and your student will sign out in the attendance office. This makes it so much easier for a student to leave the classroom on time. Calling the classroom is disruptive to the teacher and fellow students.
