Superintendent's Message


Greeting Families,

I received some questions from parents over the winter break about the PHS Graduation date. The State of Connecticut has passed a new law regarding school attendance. Boards of Education can now allow high school seniors to graduate on a set date without needing to make-up inclement weather days (or other unforeseen school closings). The Plainfield Board of Education has set the Class of 2023 graduation date for Friday, June 9th, 2023. The graduation date will not be adjusted based on "snow" days. We hope this helps our families with travel and celebration planning.

Note: The last day of school for other grade levels will continue to be extended due to school closings for weather and other emergencies. At this time the projected last day of school for elementaries and underclassmen is Tuesday, June 13, 2023. Please remember that all PHS students are required to take their exams on the scheduled date and time. Therefore, please do not make any plans that will take students away from school before the last day of exams. Please reach out with other questions,

Paul M. Brenton Superintendent of Schools


Dear Plainfield Parents,

As a reminder, In October we sent a notice home alerting families that the state funding that allowed our district to provide meals at no charge will run out at the end of December. Therefore, free meals for all students will end on Friday December 23rd, 2022.  When we return from the holiday break, school meals will return to their normal prices.  Breakfast for students will be $1.90 at all locations.  Lunch will cost $2.80 at the elementary schools and between $2.80 and $3.65 at the secondary schools depending on meal selections.

Free and Reduced-Price Meals Applications

We encourage families to review the FRL eligibility criteria and  to complete and submit the FRL priced meal application if you have not done so already.  

There are many reasons why qualifying families should complete the FRL application, even if they are not interested in school meals.  Qualifying families are eligible for other benefits such as college application fee waivers and free AP testing.  

Who Qualifies for free meals?   

Each year the Federal Government sets new guidelines for qualifications which can be found on our website: PPS Parent_Letter_FAQ_Free_Reduced_Meals_NSLP_.pdf    

Please reach out to Jana Livernoche at Plainfield Schools with any questions.  (860) 564-6459


Thank you for all you do for our students

Mr. Paul M. Brenton
