Is there a reason the answer has "et" in it? I was marked correct without it, but I just wanted to know if it was a french colloquialism of some sort.

Actually you may just say "au revoir, à demain".

My question exactly - I think that's probably the grammatically correct form, but just like we shorten our greetings they take out the et also

I know we haven't learn the word yet, but would 'Au revoir jusqu'à demain' also be correct, even if it does seem a little awkward? Plus, I've never heard anyone use 'Goodbye until tomorrow' in speech.

No, "jusqu'à demain" would not be used.

I'm sure that french people normally just say "à demain" to mean this phrase, but maybe that's not accurate enough here
