STAMFORD -

Westhill High School students brought their concerns about their health to a public meeting following Monday's walkout over mold concerns.

The meeting was held Wednesday night at the Stamford Government Center. 

Students walked out of class Monday to protest the slow response to ongoing mold issues inside of classrooms.

The students say they are tired of feeling sick and fear the special task force in Stamford is not moving fast enough.

Officials say around 45 teachers have filed claims for mold-related illnesses and 18 are still out sick.

The Stamford Task Mold Task Force will meet with families at the school Friday.
