Develop a support system...

I would reach out to other colleagues for support and friendship. They may have techniques that worked for them in this school and with this population. Read the IEPS for your classified students and make sure that they are receiving the support services they are legally entitled to. When I had an autistic student mainstreamed into my classroom, he had an aide, and when she left on maternity leave, the aide was replaced.

I would definitely take the first few weeks and build relationships an routines. Do the best you can, and hopefully, your employment in this school will be temporary. That principal sounds like a nightmare. And if that parent goes off on you again, do not meet with her alone. Her response to you was unprofessional and threatening. You should not have to listen to that.

I wish you luck. There are no easy answers to your situation, but I hope you find a way to have a good year, nonetheless. Those kids obviously need you.
