Kuemper’s Uniform Closet
Kuemper has a room at the high school dedicated to the exchange of gently used uniform clothing. We’ve had a great response from families so far and so the room has reached its capacity. We thank everyone for their donations, but at this time, we ask that no other donations be made.

From now on, and throughout the school year, the Uniform Closet will be open at all times during normal business hours. No appointment needed! Just come in, browse and leave with some amazing finds. It’s all free! So don’t hold back. :)

The Uniform Closet is located in Room 170 on the first floor of the high school. Any secretary or staff available can show you to the room if you do not know where it is.
