ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- After a first grader brought a loaded gun to Gibson Elementary last Monday, the Riverview Gardens School District announced its plans to keep students more safe.

Superintendent Clive Coleman talked to 60 parents Thursday night about safety and his plan to implement clear backpacks for all students within the district.

The student who brought the gun to school was suspended after the incident and could be transferred to a different district.

Coleman and school board members plan to hold more meetings about student safety with parents in the future.
