Using the outdoors as a classroom has many inherent benefits and teachable moments. There are also the added circumstances to deal with, such as inclement weather. Except in the circumstances of extreme and severe weather, the field trip will go on outdoors as scheduled no matter what the weather. If there is severe weather, we will make every attempt to reschedule the field trip.
Severe weather that would cause a field trip to be cancelled and rescheduled includes (but not limited to):
Thunderstorms and lightning in the immediate area
Thunderstorms or tornado warnings in the immediate area
Sustained torrential rain
Wind chill or temperature below 0 degrees Fahrenheit
Heat index or temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit
If the weather is forecasted as severe for the day of your field trip, Friends of the High Line will be in contact with you by 3pm the day before.
If a field trip is cancelled due to severe weather, Friends of the High Line will make every attempt to reschedule the field trip. If rescheduling is not possible, we will refund any program fees.
If your class is scheduled to come on a day that has inclement, but not severe weather, we will do our best to make accommodations during the trip to make it the best experience possible for your students. The weather is part of the natural world and we appreciate your understanding and patience when dealing with something so unpredictable.
