TextingCEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. — According to school officials 4 students have been suspended from Cedar Springs Middle School for sending sexually explicit texts. Police say that they were alerted on Monday after the school security officer heard about students having semi nude photos on their cell phones. Cedar Springs Police tell FOX 17 that it appears that those involved were taking photos of themselves to send to a friend.  The Cedar Springs Police is investigating to see if any young adults are involved with receiving or distributing these underage photos. The investigation involves both female and male students, ages 12 to 14.

According to The School Principle the acts depicted in the texts did not occur in school, but that because the electronic messages were shared among students,it became a school matter.

The Cedar Springs Police Department would like to stress to parents that they know what their young teenagers are doing and have an open policy when it comes to cell-phones.  A parent should be able to look at texts and photos, especially after hearing about an incident like this.
