Hard to know what will happen, but kahluablast's suggestions make excellent sense.

I'm surprised that your school district didn't give you some basic training about do's and don't's as a coach. In my district, just about anyone who is working directly with students needs to be screened.

It sounds as if this is a young alum who doesn't understand the boundaries between the cheerleaders and coaches/advisors. She should have been given some guidance before she started working with the cheerleaders, but you lack the experience to do it. Among other things, she should not have been texting the cheerleaders and she should not have been "sponsoring" a school activity without approval and supervision.

The parents were right to be upset. Good luck to you--and follow kahluablast's advice. Now.
