PULASKI, WI (WTAQ) - A Pulaski School Board member convicted of hosting an underage drinking party with her son and other high school friends back in May decided not attend a discussion about her actions Wednesday night.
Christine Vandenhouten showed up for the meeting, but upon seeing WTAQ’s vehicle pull up, she turned around and left in her car.
Milt Thompson is the new Superintendent. He took over on August 1st.
Thompson shared his reaction to Vadenhouten leaving.
“It’s not a big deal, I’m not upset about it, really I have no reaction," Thompson said.
Thompson has spoken with Vandenhouten about the incident, but says she hasn’t given him any indication she would resign.
Vandenhouten paid a $366 fine on July 30th concerning the incident. Since she is not a school district employee, she can’t be disciplined.
Thompson says Wednesday’s discussion was an important one to have.
“Primarily because our school mission is always focused on students and we want to make sure all of our actions, the actions of each of us, reflect positively on students, their behaviors, on habits we want them to develop throughout life,” Thompson said.
