An investigation is underway at Arnaudville Elementary School where a band teacher is accused of showing middle school students "R" rated films without permission.
The teacher was suspended for 5 days, but has since returned to school. News 10's Caroline Balchunas spoke with a parent upset over the incident.
Last week, Arnaudville Elementary Principal sent a letter to parents, apologizing for a teacher identified as "Mr. Levier" showing "R" rated films in class.
One parent, who wishes to remain anonymous for her child's safety says she found out from another parent.
concerned parent: "I found out they watched Ted, Horrible Bosses, Think Like a Man, which is PG 13 but still offensive, hangover, a certain kind of crazy,. IP man, there's a couple movies I found out they watched."
The majority of the movies named were rated "R" for offensive language, nudity, drug use, sex, and violence.
According to parents, there were 9 movies shown throughout the fall semester.
Concerned parent: "He was told by his teacher do not tell your parents about the movies and I heard from another parent he said he saw a woman's boobs on TV."
The Saint Landry Parish Sheriff's Office is now investigating the matter.
The principal and the interim superintendent did say the teacher is back at school, but could not comment further.
In the meantime, this mother is fed up, and feels her child is too young to be exposed to the material.
Concerned Parent: "My child is not in band right now as long as that teacher is there. My child is not there I don't feel comfortable or safe with him in the class."
That concerned parent did file a complaint with the sheriff's office, which is looking into whether or not the teacher is subject to any criminal investigation.
