On February 23. 2017 my son went on a school field trip to the Houston Zoo for a UIL competition. While at the zoo the students were assigned chaperones. My son was assigned to the chaperone (Mrs. Trevino). While at the zoo Mrs. Trevino and her assigned 9 students went to the bug house. Mrs. Trevion stated to the students that those of them that wanted to go in could but she was going to stand outside. So my son was one if the students that went inside. While inside my son notice that all of the other students were gone, so as he walked outside of the bug house he notice that Mrs. Trevino and the other 8 students were gone. So my son proceeded to go find a worker at the zoo to inform him that he was left/abandoned at the bug house by his chaperone. The worker proceeded to take my son to a ranger that work at the zoo. As my son and the ranger was headed to make an announcement he notice another chaperone that was with his school. When my son returned home I asked him how was his trip and that is when I was informed of the incident.
First, I wouldn't identify anyone by name online. You are exposing yourself to a potential suit for defamation. Second, even if it was negligent of the chaperone, what are your damages. I'm glad your son is OK but how was he damaged?

This is not a legal case. Just make your complaint to the school administration office and be thankful your son was not hurt.
It is to be hoped that your son is fine and on injured. The school acted negligently at least. But without injury what you should be doing is telling the supervisors the school board
Like the other responding lawyers, I recommend against using people's actual names on this forum.
