First Environments has its own inclement weather policy and makes decisions on whether the Center will operate during inclement weather separate from NIEHS, EPA, and the local county school systems. The Director and Parent Board President take into consideration the EPA campus operational status, road conditions, travel advisories, and local school & business openings/closings/delays.

If the Center will be closed or have a delayed opening due to inclement weather, information will be available on this website, the First Environments inclement weather hotline (919) 541-KIDZ (5439), and our Facebook page.

NOTE: If First Environments has a delayed opening after 9:00 AM, no breakfast will be served. Please be sure to provide breakfast to your child(ren) on those days.


  • There are no updates at this time - First Environments is operating on a normal schedule.
