My five year blacked out and beated up 3 students and 3 teachers. She cried for 3 and half hours straight. No one could calm her down. What do I do?

In brief: Seek help

It sounds like your child is in crisis.
I would take him/her to the pediatrician right away. It's not clear what you meant by "blacking out" but this is not typical behavior and may mean that your child is struggling with physical and/or mental health problems.

My best reccomendation would be to see a chi;ld psychiatrist with experience seeing young children.
Calling her pediatrician would be a good way to start.
