There are concerns this morning for some Orange County parents who do not want to send their kids back to school.
The Cornwall Central School District now says it does not have the resources to offer 100% remote learning.   
In a letter to parents, district officials say remote learning will only be offered to families who have shown a medical need.
More than 500 families have requested remote instruction.
The district also says it does not have the technology to provide live streaming instruction and will move forward with reopening schools on Sept. 8.
Superintendent Terry Dade says, "Please know that this decision was not made based on philosophy or beliefs, but rather a complete analysis of our current technology, staffing and budget."
