ST. JAMES - Students in Saint James are trying to get by after Hurricane Sandy, with most of their private school campus still in the dark. The Knox School, a 48-acre campus that houses students year-round, lost electricity when the storm hit last week. Some buildings are being heated using generators, but officials say many of the dorms are still frigid. However, the school's headmaster says the students are coping well. "A typical class size has 10 students in it, so you can have a class around a dining room table," says headmaster Thad Gaebelein. Staff members say they hope the lights return as soon as possible so classes can continue normally.
