Pleasant Ridge Cafeterias are always in need of substitutes. If you are interested in subbing in our kitchen please go to USD 449 and click on Employment Opportunities.  Apply for the substitute position. 

Encourage your student to know the entree choices before arriving at school.  The kitchen prepares the entree from a meal count generated by first hour class, and wants your students choice to be available when they arrive in the cafeteria. 

An example of our fresh Salad Bar at the Middle School and High School level are as follows:

Lettuce romaine and iceberg, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, celery, green peppers, cheese, cottage cheese, pickles, olives, croutons, bacon bits, sunflower seeds and ranch dressing. 

Fresh fruit is offered through out the day in our cafeterias. 

We offer a variety of breakfast choices for you student every morning.  Grab and go items make it easy for your student to start their day off right.
