There are no laws, usually. Sorry. Good luck with your pumping. I know my brother, a junior high teacher, has a co-worker who pumps under one of those hooter hiders. She gives the class a reading assignment or test then goes to her desk and pumps.
Can you pump during recess/lunch?
I can't help you with the pumping at school question but have you considered co-sleeping to encourage "reverse-cycling" which might reduce DC's daytime intake and has the additional advantage of maintaining your supply? If safety is an issue for you the Kellymom article and attached list of resources gives lots of safety tips.

I'm a teacher too and I feel your pain!! I eat lunch in my classroom and pump while I eat. That at least makes sure I pump once a day. Some days though I have to wait 5 hours to get that pump in. While DS was still VERY TINY I would pump 4 times a day at work.
1. When I first get to work before I do ANYTHING else.
2. On my conference period *which I had to BEG to get...It was hard.
3. On my lunch
4. The second the kids left the room.
My problem is a rotating conference...so some days it is first thing in the morning and others it is last...makes it hard.
Keep it up mama! You can do it. We are 14 months strong of BF'ing with the work pumping!!
