If you’re a responsible parent of a school-age child, you’ve probably already had at least one conversation with your child(ren) about not taking nude selfies, not storing any sensitive pictures on a phone, and certainly not sharing any such pictures.

A cautionary message is coming from the Greece Police Department as they investigate inappropriate photographs of students circulating at one of the high schools.
Police say the images show students in various forms of undress.
“It’s all together bad for the youngsters and for these people who are taking these images and sharing them out,” said Sgt. Jared Rene, of the Greece Police Department.
One Greece mother decided to share her story with 13WHAM in hopes that it will help stop what’s going on. We are respecting her privacy and that of her daughter’s by not showing sharing their names, or where the student attends school.
Police say they are investigating if the photos are legitimate, and who is responsible for sharing them.
