High school spokesman Jim Conrey says the sexting suspects are juveniles. There are several, he says, both boys and girls. And the lewd photos appear to be selfies.

Because anytime you’re talking about sexting, not only does it diminish the person whose image is being shared around, but secondly it also diminishes the value of the person who is sending the images around. Everybody gets hurt by this,” he says.READ MORE: Mother And 10-Year-Old Daughter Dead, 4 Family Members Hospitalized After House Fire In Auburn Gresham
Not everyone was informed.
“We should know. We’re the parents. If this has something to do with one of my kids, I’m going to be in shock. I think we all need to know what’s going on,” parent Norlaine Elsbury says.
The school two months ago sponsored a forum to discourage students from sexting.MORE NEWS: Chicago Weather: Warm But Wet Sunday Morning Ahead Of Cold Front
