• IMPORTANT: These supplies are required and especially necessary in order to facilitate virtual instruction and in order to keep sanitary conditions.  Note that the bell covers listed below ensure safe and sanitary conditions when those instruments are played in class.  You must order the proper size and type of bell cover in order for your child to participate.   It can be difficult to find the exact type of bell cover needed so we ask that you order the bell cover from NEMC.com since we know that those fit our standards for safety.
