I am almost afraid to ask, but what "logic" was behind this nugget of "wisdom"?

I hope this has not gotten worse. It sounds like you are doing the right thing, and if anything you have been too kind to the teacher involved. Sounds like she has some mental issues, and should pick another profession.
From what I know about CPS, if they had serious concerns about the safety of your daughter with you, they would have already taken her into protective custody. They also will not be happy at all, if the teacher made a frivolous or false report. Whatever you do, don't do what a previous post suggested, and lie, or ask your daughter to do so. I am sure you know this, but I am sure the temptation is great.
Let us know how this works out, it sounds like you are doing the right things. There are some good teachers out there, but also more than a few head cases.

Go get a lawyer and contact every TV station and radio show that will listen to you. You just need to make SURE that you have all your facts straight (dates, times, who you spoke with, etc).[edit on 16-6-2009 by desertdreamer]

I believe her train of thought was...
1.) I give my daughter a monetary allowance.
2.) My daughter chooses to spend her monetary allowance on Hot Cocoa from a Coffee Shop off-campus right next door to the school prior to her school day.
3.) My daughter *COULD* potentially share that Hot Cocoa with a diabetic schoolmate prior to stepping on campus.
4.) Therefore my daughter should not have a monetary allowance.

Have you had a long talk with your daughter about this? There may be things she knows or has heard, and maybe does not want to talk about, or doesn't think important. Also, if she gets called into an interview, she needs to understand the seriousness of the questioning.
