UPDATED: Parents file suit against school in Hoboken after video goes viral

The parents of a pair of children seen on video allegedly being handled roughly by employees of a Hoboken Montessori school earlier this year have filed a lawsuit against the organization that runs the institution, according to NBC 4 New York.
The suit was filed Wednesday. The videos appear to show an aide allegedly grabbing at a 23-month-old girl as she attempts to put a hat on the child.
The suit, filed by the parents of the children seen in the video, seeks unspecified damages from Apple Montessori Schools and several employees for alleged negligence, emotional damage, breach of contract, assault and other charges, according to NBC.
Apple Montessori, which runs 17 schools in New Jersey, fired five employees after the videos were released.
The school held a meeting for parents earlier this year assuring that major policy changes were coming.
Apple Montessori sent a release saying, in part, “Apple Montessori takes the safety and well-being of all students seriously, and has a 40-year reputation for quality in care and education of children. We too are outraged by the unacceptable and inexcusable behavior of the individuals involved, and took immediate, definitive action when learning of the incident. Further, the school has taken extraordinary new measures to strengthen our staff training, security and child-safety protocols. This has included: Expanded video monitoring system, with additional, strategically placed cameras in all Apple schools…” and other precautions.
