LED DNP on a schematic: what does it mean? Answered

I know I am probably going to feel like an idiot with the answer, but I can't seem to find one online anywhere.

I'm looking to make this circuit but have no idea what DNP stands for.

Thanks in advance!

One LED is mounted on the board, the other is on a socket, so you can put it somewhere else.
