PLAINVILLE - A member of Plainville High School’s staff has resigned after an investigation concerning “inappropriate off campus activities” according to Superintendent of Schools Maureen Brummett.

“On or about April 3 my office learned that one of its former high school staff members is under investigation for allegations concerning inappropriate off-campus activities,” said Brummett. “Upon learning of this information, the staff member was placed immediately on administrative leave with pay and steps were taken to ensure that the employee would not come onto school property. The employee has since resigned employment with the Plainville Community Schools.”

“Plainville Community School district members should be reassured that the safety of our children is the district’s foremost concern and there are many policies and procedures in place to ensure the wellbeing of all our students,” Brummett added.

Brummet declined to comment further on the circumstances of the incident Tuesday and said that the information released to parents in the aforementioned letter was “the most up to date.”

Lt. Nick Mullins of the Plainville Police Department said that the name of the former staff member and what they were charged with could not be released at this time as the case is currently under active investigation.

Brummett said that local authorities are currently investigating the matter and that district officials are cooperating fully.

She encouraged anyone with information or concerns to call her office at 860-793-3210, ext. 202.
