The Clayton Ridge Community School board met in regular session on Dec. 12 at the high school library in Guttenberg.

An amendment to the handbook was approved to allow administrative officials to determine if weather conditions have improved enough during a cancelled school day to allow after-school activities.

Steve Hoff discussed enrollment at the Iowa Virtual Academy. Superintendent Wahls spoke about lights for the Garnavillo fields, and on his school safety presentation.
