In brief: IEP

Request an IEP INwriting from school to mark this as disabling her. It's not forever and will keep her out any truancy status.
Seek CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) therapist who specializes in children-this is the most recognized and validated type of therapy for anxiety. Take care

In brief: See a therapist

You probably need the help of a therapist to get through this.
You can try a transitional object, something soothing from home that she can take to school.
