Two female Long Island high-school teachers were abruptly yanked from their classrooms Monday after being accused of inappropriate contact with two of male students, sources said.

Sachem HS North business teachers Donna Newton-McNally (left), 41, of Centereach, and Melanie Akerberg (right), 33, of Ronkonkoma, are being investigated by district officials for alleged misconduct with a football player and a wrestler.

Sources said a girlfriend of one of the boys found texts from a teacher on his phone and alerted Sachem North principal John Dolan, who ordered a probe.

The stunned husbands of the two women reacted angrily to the revelations, with one confronting one of the two seniors this week, a source said.

District spokesperson Chris Vaccaro confirmed the teachers were removed but would not disclose the nature of the probe.

It was not clear if they were accused of physical contact or inappropriate correspondence.

The teachers have been administratively reassigned pending the outcome of the investigation.

Suffolk County Police said they have not been contacted about the situation. Both of the seniors are over the age of consent.

Students were stunned by the news and described both teachers as popular fixtures on campus.

“It’s just hard to believe that this stuff goes on,” said one student who tweeted her support for Newton-McNally.“I’m really hoping that there isn’t anything to it and it’s chatter.”
