FLOWERS SEND A POWERFUL MESSAGE: On Saturday, the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health will launch the 988 Su***de & Crisis Lifeline across the state of Illinois (available in multiple languages). Compassionate, accessible care and support will be available for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress—whether that is thoughts of su***de, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

In Rockford, people walking or driving along the Auburn Street corridor from the Rock River to Veterans Memorial Circle can find the hotline number spelled out in flowers on a sidewalk garden bed. It was planted by Megan Pease, a Rockford resident who is a Rock Valley College biology professor and one of the most active volunteers with Friends of Veterans Memorial Circle.


LAST DAY REMINDER: The last day of school is Thursday, June 9, for all K-11 students. Students will follow a shortened five-hour schedule. Students will still be provided breakfast and lunch. Contact your school’s main office staff with any questions.
