August 20, 2019


    Today marks the 10 year anniversary of the death of Brian M. Wolverton who after graduating from Oak Park High School and spending some time at Moorpark College joined the United States Army and served with the 32nd Infantry Regiment, out of Fort Drum, New York.  Private First Class Wolverton was killed in action in Asadabad, Afghanistan, on 20 August 2009 after sustaining wounds from enemy fire. His example serves as an unforgettable symbol of patriotism and selfless service, an individual who surrendered his life for his nation so that others may live.   Please join us for 10 seconds of silence to honor his memory and legacy.

We will be collecting data on support usage during the month of August to ensure we are providing sufficient access to onsite tech support.  If your Chromebook needs a technician during non-support hours, please place a HelpDesk ticket (helpdesk.opusd.us) and a technician will look into the issue.  We are still working on a system for checking out temporary loaners.  In the meantime, each classroom has extra chromebooks for student use.
