WYCKOFF - Wyckoff parents are being urged to check their children's cell phones following a recent "sexting" scandal at Dwight Eisenhower Middle School.

Police say the incident came to light Monday, when a member of the staff heard two girls in the hallway arguing. The student who allegedly created and text-messaged nude pictures was being confronted by another student.

Officials say the pictures were originally sent to two boys by a 13-year-old girl who took nude photos of herself. They say parents should use this incident as a teaching moment for their children.

The photos were widely circulated, but police gave the kids until Thursday morning to delete the them or face child pornography charges. Officers hope that students learned a lesson about the consequences of taking naked pictures.

Police say they've spoken with the girl who sent the pictures, as well as her family.Cops: Teachers at Wyckoff school take 4 phones, delete nude photos
