Six New Trier High School students were charged with distributing inappropriate photos by text and email, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The investigation began last month and District 203 Superintendent Linda Yonke alerted parents that the police were looking into the matter.
According to the Tribune, Winnetka police confirmed Tuesday that six male students were charged Oct. 25 after police interviewed more than 20 students in their investigation. Police are not releasing the students’ names or hometowns, or saying how the photos were inappropriate.
In her letter to parents, Yonke wrote, according to Wilmette Life: “We hope families can use this opportunity to reinforce our internet safety messages and to discuss the consequences and permanency of actions involving the internet, social media, texting or other forms of electronic communication.”
