CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Since the most recent mass school shooting in Parkland, Fla., parents and students across the country have been trying to come up with a solution to make the school environment safer.

President Donald Trump met with students and family members impacted by the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday. The president suggested arming certain educators with a gun.

If assistant football coach Aaron Feis, who died while saving students from gunfire, was armed, "he would have shot and that would have been the end of it," President Trump said.

Other solutions include the "JustinKase," a device developed by a teenager that secures the door to the door frame to prevent it from being opened.

A company in Stow is manufacturing lightweight bulletproof vests that fit inside a laptop bag and a child's backpack.

One aunt is even sharing her advice on Facebook on what she did for her nieces to make sure they have something with them at all times that could potentially keep them safe.

The woman's post has gone viral and has over 1.4 million shares on Facebook as of Thursday morning.
