A Davie teacher is facing a 10-day unpaid suspension for losing a student during a field trip to Lion Country Safari, a popular drive-through animal park in western Palm Beach County.

Dillan Versai, 41, a second-grade teacher at Nova Blanche Forman Elementary school, failed to properly supervise his students at lunchtime during the February trip, a district complaint shows.
