FALLBROOK, Calif. (KGTV) - A handful of parents attended a Fallbrook Union High School District board meeting Monday demanding answers in light of a brawl involving students at Fallbrook High last week.

"This is ridiculous for the area of Fallbrook to have this kind of problem," one parent said to the school board. "You got to get control somehow or another."

Another parent said, "If it requires an administrator to lose their job to get security staff, great, I'm all for it.”

The reaction from parents followed another fight that happened Monday. The superintendent this incident involved two girls.

Last Friday, a brawl erupted on the campus and involved roughly 20 students. Ten students were arrested, and 10News learned the charges for some included a probation violation and battery charges.

The superintendent also confirmed some of the students were on probation. Parents wanted to know why students on probation were attending classes with their students. The superintendent said it has to do with state law.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is looking into motives that led to the fight. They're also looking into whether there were previous altercations or prior tension between any of the students.

The school district said their investigation into Friday's fight is ongoing, but they hope to finish by Wednesday.
