First of all, I am sure that this was a terrifying 50 minutes for you but am glad that all ended well. Second, it is extremely difficult to answer your question without knowing more facts. Ultimately, the question is whether the school (or teachers) breached some legal duty owed to you or your son. Perhaps they failed to comply with their own policies and procedures or moving forward new policies should be adopted so this doesn't happen again -- to you, your son, or others.
This is not really a child custody question, but a question regarding whether the school is properly taking care of your child. You would need to speak to a personal injury attorney to determine if there is some action you may take against the school district.
