What are the legal consequences of "sexting" in a high school?

Question Details:

I am a high school teacher. As one of my classes was beginning, my students were talking about receiving a nude picture though texting. I asked who had that picture, and many boys did. I asked who would volunteer their phone so that I may report it to the principal and one of my students volunteered his phone. However he didn't want the friend who sent it to him to be in trouble, so he deleted the text after saving the image to his picture collection. After informing the principal, they took my student and intimidated him by telling him that he could be in a lot of trouble. Is he? What are the legal consequences?
