I don't think this is an issue of what the school should do. No, the school can't tell people who they can or have to invite to a party. It's just an etiquette issue. If you're inviting almost everyone in a class, or almost all the girls, the polite thing to do is invite that other person so no one is left out. Though that's more of a clear etiquette issue when it's 19 out of 20 than when it's 2 out of 3, for sure. And then the second etiquette issue is not making it obvious to kids not invited to a party that there is a party at all, and picking up the kids from preschool with discussions of the party they're going to breaks that as well. It's unkind.
