Trouble with School Athletics

We have been called in to meet with the principal because the cheerleading sponsor wants to remove my daughter from the team. (Daughter is 13 dx at age 7, on an omnipod) The coach says she didn't have her supplies. What actually happened is that she used her supplies earlier in the day and needed to get some juice out of the "emergency bag" which the coach didn't even have at practice.Does anyone have experience with this? Does kicking her out of cheer constitute discrimination?Thanks allSee More

"We just had to change my daughter's rx to one every 2 days because she just wasn't making it 3. It was actually really easy for us -- no problems with the insurance or the distributor. We get ours from Liberty medical."
