Last week, administrators at a New Jersey middle school found naked pictures of students on classmates' phones, leading school district officials as well as the police to get involved. Bernards Township Superintendent Nick Markarian told parents in a letter that if their kids deleted photos by Sunday, then they wouldn't be charged criminally, " Please tell your child that under no circumstances should they be taking nude photos of themselves. The letter also pleaded, "Please tell your child that if someone asks them to create such a photo they should say no and report the person to a trusted adult. Please tell your child if they receive inappropriate photos they should immediately delete the photo or immediately go to the police station or school office if at school with their phone - they should NOT distribute the photo.
