COVID-19 Food Service Information
Please help us help by letting us know in advance how many meals you plan on picking up on which days by using this link:  

Starting Tuesday, March 17, families can stop by the main entrance of Plainville High School between 11:00am and 12:00pm (under the large awning near the flagpole on Robert Holcomb Way), and pick up a free lunch for that day, and also a breakfast for the following day.  A weekly menu will be posted at our Food Service Webpage. Meals are available for all PCS students and any other household members under the age of 18.  Families will need to provide their child(ren)'s name(s) and will be asked to take the meals home with them.
