CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (WFRV) – If you were planning on going to the Clintonville homecoming football game, you’ll need to find a new plan for spending you’re Friday night.

According to an administrative letter, officials at the Clintonville Public School District announced the cancelation on Thursday, Oct. 7. Why? Because of COVID-19.
