Health Guidelines 2021-2022


As we prepare for another successful year, our primary goal remains to keep us all healthy.  Please see our HEALTH GUIDELINES for all the current information on how we are responding to Covid-19 as a school. As new data and state and local guidelines are updated throughout the year, we will reevaluate our protocols and practices. Please reach out to the Health and Safety Committee members with any questions.




Thanks to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), we have full access to a variety of Covid testing for our School community.


We require all students, faculty, and staff to receive a negative Covid-19 test before the start of school. We will accept all forms of Covid tests. We ask that tests be done between Thursday, September 2 and Monday, September 6.


Next week, we are planning on offering all NLS students, faculty, and staff free Covid-19 testing before school begins here at NLS. Please save the date for Thursday, September 2 between 10 a.m. and noon. We hope to have testing materials delivered by the state by that date. If for some reason, the materials are not delivered in time, please obtain a test on your own and email results to our Covid officer, Alicia Lynn at Thank you for your support!
