ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- The Ferguson Florissant school district is stressing safety after dealing with four gun-related incidents since the beginning of the school year. In one incident, a student brought a loaded gun to McCluer High School. After disciplining that student, Superintendent Dr. Joseph Davis recorded a video on the district's YouTube channel to talk about the district's policy on guns. Davis also had a request for parents.

Davis stated, "I really want parents to be involved in their child`s education. Talk with them - tell me what happened at school today. Tell me what`s going on in math class. Tell me who are your friends. Because that`s a part of the huge trajectory that children take. Is, who are their friends, and who are they around during the school day."

Davis says that conversation between parent and child can make safety an important lesson that goes beyond the classroom.
