Complimentary COVID Test Kit

Principal Message

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to send out a reminder that we will be disbursing Covid tests this morning. Please drive on by our parking lot to pick up a kit(s). One test per student. If you have not already picked one up, please stop by.

We will have a station with volunteers passing out the kits this morning Monday, August 8, in the Foster Road parking lot from 8:00-11:00.

Thank you.


Dear NLMUSD Families,

I hope that you had an opportunity to relax, recharge, and enjoy the summer break. In addition, I want to thank you for your continued partnership as we enter the 2022-23 school year. Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

I am pleased to share that the District has a supply of COVID-19 at-home antigen tests. Each student and staff member in NLMUSD will receive a kit that contains two tests. Your school site will be sending communication that will include instructions regarding distribution. It is strongly recommended that your student completes a test prior to returning to school. We encourage your student to take the test on Wednesday, August 10, 2022. If your student tests positive or exhibits symptoms, please follow our normal isolation/quarantine guidance by the County of Los Angeles Public Health: English | Español. COVID-19 testing is important in identifying positive cases, which will help keep our school communities safe, healthy, and open. If you have any questions, please contact your school site.

I look forward to seeing all students and staff upon our return from summer break on August 11, 2022. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our schools healthy and safe. I hope you all have continued good health and wellness. Please enjoy the rest of your summer.

With NLM Pride,

John M. Lopez, Ed.D.

Hello parents,
