    I’m in a new, large district.

    We’re supposed to get a meager $100-ish a year to spend on whatever we want for our rooms.

    We all put in our requests at the start of the year. I’ve followed up a few times - November, January - but nothing has been received and I’ve never gotten a reply from our office manager.

    I know it’s not personal. Word is that nothing was ever ordered because she’s been so busy. She’s a nice person and I know she’s working hard but it’s so irritating that there are supplies we need and no one will order them or even update us on the status. But also I feel bothered that my politely worded emails asking about the things haven’t even gotten replies.

    Is this an issue at other schools?

    Are you able to see the office manager in person? Can you drop by just to check if the stuff is ready to be picked up?

    Good grief. It's already January. At this rate you'll get your stuff by the last day of school. I'm sorry, but no matter how busy someone is this isn't acceptable. Maybe someone else should do the ordering?
