Anyone who has questions or comments for Rock Island-Milan School District officials will have a chance to express them over coffee.

The district has scheduled a series of "Coffee and Conversations" events where district residents can come and discuss issues with staff in an informal setting, according to a news release from the district.

The first event is scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, at the Rock Island Hy-Vee, with a second one at 10 a.m. at the Milan Hy-Vee.

The Rock Island Hy-Vee is at 2930 18th Ave., and the Milan store is at 201 10th Ave. West.

Anyone who can't make it to the coffees can submit questions and comments via a web form on the district's home page at rockislandschools.org, the release states.
