WESTHAMPTON BEACH - An unidentified Westhampton Beach Middle School teacher is under investigation after allegations surfaced involving misconduct with female students.

The district's superintendent issued a statement saying that students have made allegations concerning a staff member at the middle school. The statement also says that the staff member has been reassigned to administrative duties while the investigation is under way.

While no one from the district would comment further, News 12 Long Island has learned from multiple sources that the allegations involve a male teacher and the alleged incidents took place in the girls' locker room.

Some parents say that the district's statement doesn't say enough about the incident.
