Four of five committee meetings scheduled for last night did not happen because four of the eight school board members chose to walk out of the scheduled gathering. Laura Lebeouf, Kibbie Pillette, Sara Duplechain, and David Dupius all arrived for the meeting but then left before business could begin.

Board members Pillette and Lebouef told KATC Television that they left the meeting because of Puyau's presence. They maintain that since the board had not voted to reinstate Puyau it was illegal for him to be on school property. Puyau maintains that he has followed policy and procedure and is free to return to work.

The President of the School Board did suggest that if the four board members come to the regularly scheduled Thursday meeting perhaps their proposed items can be heard at that time.
