Moorpark school officials say construction delays have forced the district to abandon plans to open its new middle school by fall and that the facility may not be ready for students until late 1993 at the earliest. "We had a target date of opening next September, and it doesn't look like we're going to be able to make it," school board President Tom Baldwin said this week. "We had to rebid the thing, and it cost us a couple months. It was going to be tight anyway."

Powerful winds that swept through the San Fernando Valley and other parts of Los Angeles caused enough problems at one Valley school to force officials to close it. Maclay Middle School and Primary Center in Pacoima closed early Monday because of heavy winds and will stay closed today. Classes at the school had been scheduled to resume today after being closed for winter break. Officials said the windstorm sent pieces of the building's roof flying, posing a hazard for students and teachers.
