No criminal charges will be filed against the Rotolo Middle School students who photographed their nude selves and sent the pictures to other students, Batavia police announced Monday.
According to a news release, police and school authorities intend to educate students about the ramifications of the use and misuse of social media.

Batavia School District 101 Superintendent Lisa Hichens said last week that the district could discipline students, but would most likely instead counsel and educate the students. She also said the district would not announce whether students were disciplined, in keeping with the district's policies regarding student privacy.
School officials called police a week ago after a student told them about the pictures. Police said six to seven students used cellphones to take photos of themselves while posing in front of mirrors, and sent them to other students. The photos were taken up to six weeks prior.
