A Safety Message from Dr. Stone


Berkner High School Parents,

I’m reaching out this evening to share information with you about former Pearce High School teacher Rob Temple. Mr. Temple was found deceased this past Tuesday. This evening, RISD received information that Mr. Temple is the suspect in a Dallas Police Child Exploitation offense investigation and according to Dallas Police, it was determined that he had been involved in a relationship with a student at a different school. This is a serious situation involving the safety of students, and I wanted you to know as soon as possible.

Dallas Police are requesting that anyone with information about Mr. Temple related to this investigation contact Dallas PD at 214-671-4215. Mr. Temple was a teacher at Pearce and in RISD for two years, since 2017. Please speak with your student to determine if they have information relevant to the police investigation, and contact Dallas PD if they do.

Thank you for your partnership in keeping our students safe.
