: Classes are cancelled if Acton-Boxborough Schools are closed due to weather. Notification via e-mail for Recreation Dept. staffed programs will be made if a class is cancelled due to weather or field conditions. Programs run by our independent contracted instructors are responsible to notify participants of class cancellations/changes. Efforts will be made to makeup weather cancelled classes, but are not guaranteed. Any class cancellations due to an illness of an instructor will be made up or refunded. Refunds will not be offered due to a participant’s inability to participate in makeup sessions. If a program is cancelled by the Acton Recreation Department due to an inability to run the program, a full refund will be issued.

: Bus trips will run if the minimum number of registrations is received. Our trips are merged with other local towns to help meet the minimum required. If a trip is cancelled due to the lack of minimum participants, a full refund will be issued. Please note that pickup/drop-off locations are subject to change if an adequate number of registrations is not received for a pickup location in Acton. Refunds will not be issued for a non-Acton pick-up/drop-off location. In the event of illness, a trip can be transferred but not refunded once a commitment has been made. If you have any refund questions, please inquire prior to signing up. Individual bus trip refund policies will be outlined in the trip description.
