Substitute teacher tells students that Santa and the elves aren’t real

MENTOR, Ohio - A substitute teacher in the Mentor school district is accused of telling a group of third-graders that Santa Claus and his elves just aren't real.

It happened at Sterling Morton Elementary School.

When the school's principal found out about it, she called the parents of each child in the class and apologized.

But some of the children are heartbroken about the revelation.
