Oh I would raise HELL.  Who has decided that the epicenter of illness in the school is now unable to safely contain illness?

I agree. We are trying to figure out who took them... but I'm doubtful. The principal is angry.  We've previously left my door open so the secretaries can get what they need, but now the door is locked.

ALL of my supplies except bandages, lice sticks, etc. are always under lock and key... Not because of my coworkers, we have a cleaning company that comes in and cleans our school each night.

This is so sad!  I will admit that I am getting a little nervous by the COVID-19 situation because I have a child that is immunosuppressed and has heart and lung issues but I am smart enough to not wipe out all the supplies so that the essential people that need them will not have them.  What is the world coming to?

Ooooh, I'd be mad. I wrote on my extra large bottle of sanitizer "Please do not refill your sanitizer from this bottle."

My PTA gave me 6 large bottles of hand sanitizer that I have written nurse's office only on, which are also kept locked up where I have the only key to where they are locked up.

Sadly, this won't stop the thieves...

So.... I've been taking my (very few) adult sized masks home with me each night because I do not trust people not to steal them. As of now, the school is well-stocked with bleach wipes and hand sanitizer, but I'll start toting that home as well, if things get wild and teachers try to hoard my supplies!

I just locked all of the supplies that I thought would be tempting - masks, gloves, sani-wipes, lysol, etc.  Only 2 keys to that cabinet -I have them both.  My office gets locked anyway, but that doesn't mean my supplies are safe.
