Starting middle school

My 12 year daughter was home schooled last year, but now has to start 7th grade at the middle school. She went on day 1 and then I get a call that she has a fever. Come pick her up. Now were on day 3 and I told her she needs to go back to school and she starts crying hysterically. I'm a single parent, her dad passed away unexpectedly 3 years ago, so I'm sure that has something to do with this current situation. I had her with a therapist, but she wouldn't talk. That was a year ago. She said last night she's ready to get therapy and find out why she so anxious about going to school. That doesn't solve my current problem, she has to go to school. Help!

Are you working with the school on this? Are they aware of the situation? If she can't continue to be homeschooled while she sorts this out, maybe the school can work something out where the school environment is less stressful for her.
