Some parents in the Hoboken School District are frustrated as some classes are set go virtual due to COVID-19 cases.
Parents say they were asked to get their kids tested for COVID-19 before returning to school, but lab-backups prevented some from getting results back on time.
They say the district left it up to parents to decide whether to send their young kids back to school.
When late results did come back, some were positive. Now several classes are in quarantine and will learn remotely next week.
News 12 reached out to Hoboken Public Schools for comment, but has not yet heard back.
