  • Hey BHRA Students -Today’s tip of the day is what to do when you have any problems with your chromebook.

If you have a problem with your chromebook, you can bring it to the library during 8th hour for Ms. Mathis to look at it. If you aren’t able to come in then or your chromebook quits working, bring it into the library and drop it off to be looked at, and you will be given a loaner chromebook to use.
