COVID Update

Following up on the message earlier today from Interim Superintendent Reilly, all students and employees, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, returning for in-person instruction must have a negative COVID test result before coming to school.   


Options for completing the COVID-19 test requirement: 

  • The nearest Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 testing site is Monlux Elementary School, open from 8:00am - 4:00pm. Information about additional testing sites can also be found on the Los Angeles Unified website at

    • Other LDNE Testing Sites include:
      • Byrd MS, East Valley HS, Fulton College Prep, Maclay MS, Mount Gleason MS, Romer MS, San Fernando HS, Sylmar HS, Van Nuys HS, Vista MS, Arleta HS, and Madison MS.
    • If you do not live in LDNE and need a different location, please visit the district COVID testing website. Or send me an e-mail, and I'll be happy to provide you a list.
  • COVID-19 at-home rapid self-tests are available for K-12 students.  You can pick up your student’s free at-home COVID-19 rapid self-tests on Friday, January 7 and Saturday, January 8 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the nearest Grab & Go site (the closest one to Grant HS is Van Nuys HS). Please visit for a map of pickup locations.

  • Families may upload external PCR or antigen tests, including one of the provided at-home tests, and upload them onto the student’s Daily Pass account no later than Sunday, January 9, 2022.
