There is an 80 per cent chance Hurón High School will open its doors Feb. 3 for second semester classes. This was the report given to the Board of Education last night by Sooren Gozmanian, planner-expediter for the Ann Arbor Public Schools. Gozmanian said the Huron High contractor has promised to give a definite answer by Dec. 1 on whether the school will open for the second semester, but he added there is a "strong possibility" it would. Gozmanian told the trustees units 2, 3, and 4 (academie wings) of the new high school will definitely be completed by Feb. 3. Units 5 and 6 (the other academie wings) have an 80 per cent chance of being completed by that date, he said. The planner-expediter added the school would not be opened unless all five educational units are completed by Feb. 3. The auditorium and gymnasium wings of the building should be finished by next September, at the latest, Gozmanian said. If Huron High does open in February, the doublé shift begun this fall in the Pioneer High building could be discontinued. The new high school had originally been scheduled to open last September, but its opening has been delayed by strikes and other problems. In another report, Gozmanian said there is a "pretty good chance" the educational wings of Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School will be ready for occupancy in February. The school had been slated for occupancy this f all, but its opening was delayed by the spring construction strike,
