Superintendent's Message

Dear River Trails 26 Community,


It is an honor and a privilege to serve you and your children as superintendent.  It is my goal that each and every child in the district grows to their potential academically, socially and physically.  I am so fortunate that there is a strong administrative and staff team at each school and that parent involvement is high.  Together we can ensure the success of our children and the community.  


Living so close, I am excited to participate fully in the community, including this summer’s Fourth of July parade and the Boxwood Bash.  I am looking forward to meeting many of you at upcoming district and community events.  


The Board of Education and I will be looking for your input on how to best address the space needs in the district due to growing enrollment.  We will share the dates and formats as soon as they are scheduled.  My office door and my email are always open if you would like to share your thoughts with me at  You can check in with my assistant Veronica Kagan if you want to stop by the office to make sure I am there at 847-297-4120, Ext. 7301.

Erin’s Law Information
On January 24, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law extending sexual abuse education in Illinois schools. The Illinois law went into effect immediately and schools are required to implement Erin’s Law during the 2014-2015 school year. Erin’s Law requires all schools to provide child sexual prevention education for all students, K-12, yearly. The law also requires educators to take part in training classes that cover sexual abuse and how to recognize warning signs.
