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.

Superintendent's Message

Dr. Delli

Dear Community Members,

The holiday season brings us traditions and rituals that bring people together. We can now share those traditions and rituals with each other using social media.  The District’s social media accounts are listed on our website under “Get Connected” and then “District Social Media”.  Please like or follow and #GetConnected.  

One of the most pervasive rituals that bring people together during this time of year is the act of gift-giving. In addition to the gifts that might be found under a tree or next to a menorah, are important gifts of inspiration, motivation, and confidence that we provide children in school and at home as they learn and grow.  

The River Trails School District community provides these gifts to each child every day by staying true to our core mission, “Together, family, staff and community inspire our diverse student population to develop the knowledge, skills and character necessary to excel in an ever-changing world, while providing a safe and nurturing environment.”

To this end, let us remember that not all gifts are wrapped and that the power of words in helping young people feel both successful and special is one of the best gifts we can give.

Thank you for your support of the River Trails School District. Continue to stay involved in the education of this community’s youth and know that your school district staff and leadership team continues to deliver high quality education services to children. 

Please enjoy all that the holiday season has to offer with your family and friends.


Dane A. Delli, Ph.D.
