Have a great summer vacation see you in August. 

Its that time of year again.  The cafeteria staff wants to thank the community for supporting us.   

If you are interested in working in our cafeteria  at USD 449, 

call Nancy at 913-705-0375.  

The menu items may change in the month of May due to getting rid of inventory for the summer vacation. 

Thank you for your understanding. 


  The Wellness Committee would like to encourage the participation of our students.  We are hoping to enlist a High School student and a Middle School student to be apart of the great things happening within the Wellness Plan.  If your student is interested in health, physical activity, food and community involvement please notify anyone on ourcommittee. Committee members are found on the Nutrition and Wellness page. 

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.



Please be sure we have your child’s allergen food form on file.

Feel free to email with any questions or concerns.
