    • Cancellations due to weather conditions will be made before the end of school on the day before the scheduled trip. A staff member will contact the school in the event of inclement weather via phone or email on the day prior to their scheduled field trip. If the trip is cancelled due to inclement weather, schools will be given the opportunity to reschedule if possible or the deposit will be returned in full.

    In light rain, cold, and sun, scheduled programs continue. Please ensure participants are dressed for the outdoors and bring a water bottle, sun block, bug spray, and wear closed toe shoes and a hat.

    In the case of extreme weather conditions (including but not limited to snow, very cold temperatures, thunderstorms, and heavy rain) Dallas Park and Recreation may cancel or alter the start or end time of the field trip.

    If the school determines the weather is not favorable, please contact us to reschedule. Failure to contact scheduling office will result in a no-show fee. The school’s weather policy may be requested.
