Honestly, there isn't much you can do about it other than control her diet (excellent suggestion Joanne!). The teacher can do many things in the classroom to help her. But other than talking to your daughter and reprimanding her for misbehaving you are limited on what you can do since you're not there.
Is this her first year in school? Did she have this problem before?
I would meet with the teacher. First find out exactly what she means by hyper. Does your daughter call out, talk to classmates, not finish her work, get out of her seat, play around with things in her desk, etc? Ask the teacher how she thinks you can help with this and ask her what she's doing other than telling your daughter to stop.

Some things you can ask the teacher to do include:
Move your daughter away from other students during quiet work time.
Use a timer to have her do work in short intervals to keep her on task.
distractions by using a study carrel.
Set up a rewards system for when she is behaving.
Send reports home daily or weekly to keep you updated.
Use a self monitoring system (if she's 2nd grade or older), where your daughter has to record each time she gets off task or calls out (what ever her issue is).
Even if your daughter does show some of the signs of ADD/ADHD that doesn't mean you and her teacher can't work with her in class to teach her how to be productive and follow the rules.
