What if I can’t buy a device?

If your family is unable or unwilling to provide a laptop or Chromebook for you to use during the school day, the school will provide one for you. Parents/guardians will be required to have a brief meeting with school administration, and both parents/guardians and students will sign a contract for use of a school device off campus. If this situation applies to you, please contact the main office at Braintree High School to leave your contact information and request a callback from your student’s housemaster. For incoming freshmen, these devices will be provided starting in August.
