May 1-BENA - While other school districts have faced a marathon of obstacles during the pandemic, Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School Director Dan McKeon said his school has endured an ultramarathon.

The pandemic has brought several hurdles, inequalities and new challenges to light for the small school deep in the heart of Leech Lake. Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig Counselor Jay Malchow compared the feat to building an airplane.

The school brought students back into a hybrid model at the end of March, after a full year of full-time distance learning. The hybrid model Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig is following is particularly cautious, with students only coming into the building one day a week right now.
