Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I enroll my child?
To enroll a student, simply click on the “Enrollment” box on the Front Page or Contact Page of Legacy School’s website. You will register as a new or returning family and be sent an email with a link to complete the registration process. All registrations must accompany a $125 online registration fee in order for enrollment to be complete.
When does the school year start/end?
The school year for Legacy runs from the end of August through the end of May. We are able to keep a traditional school year and still fulfill Nebraska’s Department of Education’s mandatory minimum contact hours since we do not take as many days off during the school year.
What are the school's hours?
Elementary school runs Monday-Friday from 8:30am until 3:30pm. Morning Jr-K, Pre-K and Preschool classes start at 8:45am and end at 11:30am. Classes are offered Monday-Friday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday, depending on the specific class. Please see the "Preschool/Pre-K Classes" page on this website for futher details. Legacy also offers afternoon Pre-K and Enrichment classes from 12:30pm-3:15pm.
Do you offer before or after school care?
Before and after school care is available through Legacy School’s Extended Care Program. Before school care opens at 7:00am. After school care begins when the school day ends and runs until 6:00 pm. Extended Care is open when Legacy School is not holding classes throughout the school year.
Do you have a summer program?
Camp Legacy is Legacy School’s summer program. Camp Legacy and Legacy School are owned and operated by the same administrative team. Elementary age campers may attend Camp Legacy’s Upper Camp for a true outdoor summer day camp experience. (9:00-3:30). Lower campers (preschool age) may attend a mini-day (9:15-12:30) or full day (9:15-3:00) of camp. Before and after camp care is available, if needed. Camp Legacy counselors facilitate daily activities including flag raising ceremony, arts & crafts, camp songs & skits, special events, sports, water activities, and plenty of outdoor time! Camp Legacy registration is held in February of each year and is not exclusive to current Legacy School students. We welcome new campers every summer. For more information on either our Lower Camp or Upper Camp, visit our camp website: www.camplegacyomaha.com.
What does my child wear?
Legacy School students wear the required school uniform everyday. Uniforms are available for purchase online through "French Toast". Uniforms include an embroidered navy shirt and khaki pants, shorts or skirt. Other options include white blouse, jumper and sweater. School spirit wear (T-shirts and sweatshirts with the Legacy mascot) are also available for purchase online and at the school. Tennis shoes or rubber-soled shoes are required to be worn for safety purposes. Please do not send your child in cowboy boots or flip-flops. We ask that girls please wear shorts, pants or tights under dresses or skirts.
How do I pay my child’s tuition?
School tuition may be paid weekly, monthly, by semester or for the entire year up front through ACH. Tuition is not altered due to illness, vacation, days off, weather, holidays or other unforeseen circumstances.
Do you offer tuition assistance and/or discounts?
Families with more than one student enrolled receive a 10% sibling discount. Legacy School has an established 501C3/Non-profit Parent-Advisory Board, which can provide tuition assistance for families who apply and qualify. Legacy School also has a partnership with "The Children's Schlorship Fund", which provides schlorships to families who apply and qualify directly with their organization.

All exterior doors are locked at all times. All visitors are buzzed into the building and must check in at the front office. At the time of registration, parents must list other adults to whom we may release their child to. All Legacy School staff members are trained in Standard Response Protocol actions for lockout, lockdown, evacuation, and shelter security.
Is there breakfast or lunch served?
Legacy School offers breakfast for students each morning at 8:00am. Lunch is served in the cafeteria everyday and is open to all Legacy students. Preschool, Pre-K and Jr-K students enrolled in morning classes who want to stay for "Lunch Bunch" or students enrolled in afternoon classes who want to come early for "Lunch Bunch" are welcome to do so. Lunch menus are available online through Sycamore and in the school’s vestibule. A 15-25 minute outdoor recess accompanies lunchtime everyday.
