AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - A new high school in east Alabama is almost open for the public.
The Opelika-Auburn News (http://bit.ly/2q5WOHI) reports that Auburn High School will be open for the community for three hours on May 31. Auburn City School staff will be stationed throughout the campus to talk about different parts of the school.
The school's date of completion was pushed back to Friday. The city's superintendent says the school is "looking great" at a board meeting this week.
Auburn City School official Daniel Chesser says teachers at Auburn's secondary schools have begun packing their classrooms to prepare for the summer transition.
After the open house, a moving company will begin the shift, moving the high school from June 1 through 14. Auburn Junior High School would go from June 15 through 30.
