MONROE, N.Y. The A-B-C's were rated X.

School officials apologized to parents after an X-rated font was used on a third-grade spelling packet handed out to parents.

The font showed male and female stick figures in provocative poses to form the letters of the alphabet.

Officials with the Monroe-Woodbury School District in Orange County apologized last week after parents at Pine Tree Elementary School were given the spelling packet at an open house.

Administrators said the teacher did not use the font intentionally.

Monroe is about 45 miles northwest of New York City.
