    Placer County Online: Text of Whitney High School Principal Memo Regarding ‘Sexting’ Arrest (Dec 23 2013)

    Dear Whitney High School Families,

    On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, our District was notified by Rocklin Police Department that they had information regarding a possible inappropriate relationship that had occurred between Richard Eldredge, WHS Drama teacher and a former Whitney High School female student. The District took immediate action by placing Mr. Eldredge on Administrative Leave effective Wednesday, December 11, 2013.

    Due to the sensitivity and integrity of the investigation, Rocklin Unified working in conjunction with Rocklin Police Department was directed not to share any information until Rocklin Police Department had completed their formal investigation.

    On Monday, December 23, 2013, Rocklin Police arrested Richard Eldredge for PC 288.3 – Unlawful contact with a minor for unlawful sexual purposes, a felony. The revelations first came to police from a mandated reporter not associated with Whitney High School or Rocklin Unified. Mr. Eldredge was booked into Placer County Jail.

    When your students return to WHS after winter break, a certificated substitute will be in the theater classes. Unfortunately, this individual cannot orchestrate all that is required for the musical production, Evita. We will attempt to find a qualified director to continue the production.

    Anyone with further information regarding this matter is encouraged to call the Rocklin Police Department at 916-625-5400 or Rocklin Unified Human Resources Department at 916-630-2240.
