Changes in the Lunchroom

Now that masks are optional and COVID cases are low, we are adjusting and making some changes within the building. One of those areas that will see changes after spring break will be in our lunchroom. We will adjust the seating arrangement, and we will now start having visitors at lunch. We have not been able to have this for two years, so many of you have never experienced lunch at Prairie Ridge. Here are a few items to note:


  • Please use the sign-up below if you would like to come and have lunch with your child. This follows board policy of making sure our visitors are pre-planned.
  • Students and their guest will have special seating on our stage.
  • You may purchase an adult lunch at school. If you would like to do this, the cost is $4.35, and it is helpful if we know this in advance.
  • You may choose to bring food from a favorite restaurant to enjoy with your child.

K--10:50-11:20

1st--11:50-12:20

2nd--11:20-11:50
