Classes Resume For Hoboken Students Displaced By Fire
Classes have finally resumed for students of a northern New Jersey charter school that was shuttered after it was severely damaged by fire earlier this month.
The Hoboken Charter School welcomed back its 200 students on Tuesday. The K-8 school has temporarily moved its operations to a vacant school in nearby Jersey City, and it’s not known when — or if — they will be able to return to their former building.
Seven firefighters were injured while battling the three-alarm fire that erupted at the charter school on Sept. 6. It’s still not clear what sparked the blaze, which started on the second floor of the four-story charter school building.
School officials say that one of the first things they did Tuesday was hold a fire drill.
