BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Some students displaced by the Camp Fire don't have schools to go back to and are registering for online classes.

Many lined up at the Chico Mall on Monday to register for the classes. 

The Riverside School District donated almost 2,000 chrome books for the students as well. 

Paradise Intermediate Principal, Reiner Light, said after they check in and update contact and health information students are given a certificate to go pick up their new chrome book.

"They are doing Google classroom, but it's [the Chrome book] is not actually school property, so it's basically yours to keep," said Jaden Jones, a student at Paradise Intermediate School. 

The students learned at the Chico Mall how the Google classrooms will work. 

"They come back in here and sit down with the teacher and then the teacher shows them the links and how the classroom will work," Light said. 

Additionally, there was a table with donated school items for students to choose from. 

Paradise High School will have teachers at the Chico Mall Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. to answer student questions.
