Lewiston schools will have a new option for dealing with the tough Maine winters this school year. Monday, members of the school committee voted to change the district’s snow policy to allow delayed starts on snowy days. According to WMTW, school officials had been trying to decide whether to allow delayed starts and early dismissals for several months. Officials agreed that delayed starts would be a safer option for students to travel, while allowing them to continue their school day. The committee chose not to add early dismissal to the policy. Officials plan to revisit the policy next summer to evaluate how it worked. (WMTW)
