It was 8:30 in the morning when teachers at oak ridge elementary say they finally had enough.
After demanding fresh air in their school for months from administrators, they took their students to the only place they felt was safe...Outside.
"Bless their hearts, I'm glad, I'm so glad that they are concerned and care for our children because apparently the school officials don't," said Sandra Beeson-Gross, a parent of a second grader at Oak Ridge Elementary.
"We really don't know what's going on here. And don't see a whole lot being done as aggressive as they need to be," said Mike Kompare, who pulled his daughter from school because of the mold. She's been sick for the last four months that she's been at Oak Ridge.
"I don't want the exposure to her anymore, every night she's crying," said Kompare.
Beeson-Gross is still on the fence about pulling her 2nd grade son from school.
"I'm very concerned, I'm very angry and I just think somebody needs to do something, I'm debating strongly of removing my little boy," said Beeson-Gross.
The Guilford County Health Officials say they're revisiting the situation and working closely with guilford county schools.
Parents and teachers say that's not enough.
"Where have they been the whole time," wonders Kompare.
"It's heartbreaking, it is, you wonder whether you're doing the right thing or not, you would like to think the school officials have the kids best interest at heart, but I begin to wonder...I really am," said Beeson-Gross.
The district says teachers at Oak Ridge are allowed to hold classes outside, as long as the students are learning.
And the teachers say they'll keep the kids outside for as long as possible everyday in some effort to limit their exposure to the school.
Guilford county school leaders told WFMY News 2 today they're still discussing the mold situation.
Students still have more than 3 weeks of school remaining this year.WFMY News 2
