CHATHAM, NJ - Soon-to-be seniors from Chatham High came before the School District of the Chathams Board of Education on Monday night to lobby for the continuation of "Open Campus" for the 2015-2016 school year.

Class treasurer Dennis Sullivan, secretary Maddie Covino, vice president Stephen Bondurich and president Molly Kate Dinnhaupt asked the board of education to approve the continuation of "Open Campus," which allows seniors to sign out of school during free periods.

Board president Jill Critchley Weber advised the students to "look out for each other" and make sure they get help for any classmates who make poor choices.
