On Monday, Lewiston’s superintendent is expected to recommend the School Committee vote to implement an optional masking policy beginning March 7.

A Google survey sent to the school community shows 73 percent of respondents are in favor of optional masking.

The proposal will need a majority vote to change from universal to optional masking.
