Construction crews are about halfway done building Garfield High School’s new administration building and auditorium. The workers have been pulling double-shifts in order to complete the construction by next summer, according to Garfield Principal Jose Huerta. Students and staff are expected to occupy the new facilities at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, Huerta said. The previous administration building and auditorium were damaged in a 2007 arson fire and were demolished in 2010.
