For now it looks like the issue is resolved, but there is no reason not to let the school district know this sort of action is unacceptable.  The video, I believe has presented an opportunity for the district to CYA and their command was a major FAIL.

Think about which three independently owned businesses you’d miss most if they were gone. Stop in and say hello. Pick up a little something that will make someone smile. Your contribution is what keeps those businesses around.
If just half the employed US population spent $50 each month in independently owned businesses, their purchases would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that.
