5th-graders shown health video for older kids

Miller Place officials say the district accidentally showed fifth-grade girls a health video meant for older students.



"One group of female students was accidentally shown a video focusing on puberty and body changes intended for both male and female seventh-grade students," the superintendent announced in a statement.



The district says the video was not a sexual education video. 



They also say that parents of all of the students involved have been contacted by school officials.
