Because our families and staff travel vast distances to all of our locations, each Verner site will take its cue from another nearby school or district. At the same time, Verner reserves the right to act independently when we see fit in to meet the needs of our families and to keep our children, staff, and faculty safe. Please make sure we can reach you at all times.

The state of North Carolina requires all Early Childhood programs to test their water for lead at any water source. All Verner Centers were tested in 2020: 

  • Verner East: At or below 0.1 ppb
  • Verner Central: 1 water source testing 0.331ppb, within safe limits.  

There is no safe level of lead in water for children. Verner practices safe water habits by:

  • Designating drinking faucets and non drinking faucets 
  • Allowing water to run for 1-5 minutes when faucets have been inactive for an extended period. 
  • Using cold water for food preparation
  • Regularly maintaining equipment to ensure safety
