Nebraska's only private, independent day school for students age 3 to grade 12.

Extended Care Program

Raider Zone families, please read the following update from Director of Extended Care Jenn Sherer regarding billing during campus closures caused by COVID-19:

Families of children who attend Long Zone will not be billed for the fourth quarter. Third quarter billing covered January 8, 2020, through March 8, 2020, and was previously billed on December 31, 2019. Fourth quarter billing would have covered March 18 through May 22, 2020. This was not billed, and therefore, there are no refunds to issue. In the event we are able to come back to school, a prorated amount will be assessed and communicated to families in advance.  

That being said, “drop-in” charges for February and March have not been billed due to a family emergency in the business office. If your family incurred any drop-in charges, you will notice them on your March 26 bill.

Please note, our morning care and Short Zone care are included in the registration fee. The registration fee is a required fee to participate in the extended care program. This fee is non-refundable and based on enrollment, not attendance. More information about this can be found on BT's Raider Zone information sheet

Should you have any questions or concerns about your billing, please contact Jenn Sherer, Activities Director Jeff Rohrig, or Executive Director of Business and Finance Shari Jensen.  

Stay safe, and know we are all in this together!
