Plainville High School Mission Statement

     Plainville High School is a learning community dedicated to preparing all students to meet ever-changing personal and global challenges by promoting their intellectual, emotional, physical, social, and cultural growth. 

     Plainville High School encourages all students to be respectful and responsible members of a diverse democratic society. Plainville High School fosters student success by facilitating communication and cooperation among students, educators, parents, and the community.

I strongly believe and support the concepts of the Plainville High School Mission Statement
I feel that this focus between 
educators, students and parents will promote student growth.
I look forward to working with the 
students, parents, and the community during the school year

  1. The first time a student misses an assignment teachers will talk to the student and encourage him or her to complete the homework.

A Note about Riccardo's grading policy: 


A #1 in the grade book denotes a Homework or Project that has not been turned in by the student.

Students are responsible to turn in all Homework.

Homework and Projects can be turned in late at a cost of 10pts per day late OR a minimum of 20pts for later than 10 days late.


A #1 that has been entered as a grade denotes a missed Test, All missed Test CAN be made up BEFORE the end of the quarter..

A #5 that has been entered as a grade denotes a project that has been collected but not yet graded.

At the close of the Quarter any missed Test will stay at the grade of a 1 an can not be made up.
