Happy holidays -- a year late

NORTHBOROUGH/SOUTHBOROUGH

The $60.8 million renovation and addition of Algonquin Regional High School in Northborough should finally be complete – more than a year overdue – by the times students leave for the winter holiday, school officials say.

Three sections of the school still undergoing construction will be ready and available for students and staff once they return from break, Superintendent Rosemary Joseph said. Those areas include the administrative wing (including with the principal’s office and guidance area), the auditorium, the old gym and the band room.

The project was stalled in December 2005 when the Algonquin Building Committee fired Eastern Contractors Inc. of Framingham for failing to meet the May 2005 deadline.
