Michele- you are a good mom. She needs your comfort and love right now. Try and rest tonight. It is a very good idea to not let her talk to anyone about the incident without you present. I once brought a trusted friend to the meeting with the principal. It helped me. God speed. Hugs and more hugs
Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you, not because they are nice but because you are.
