Bellevue School District Fields Playgrounds: The District has carefully considered use of its’ District playgrounds, and has made the decision not to allow use of its’ playground for the following reasons:
- They are often crowded and could make social distancing difficult;
- It can be difficult to keep surfaces clean and disinfected;
- The virus that causes COVID-19, can spread when young children touch contaminated object and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.
The following field is closed for construction: Newport High School Varsity Baseball Field

A $20.00 non-refundable processing fee must accompany the application. It is our policy not to hold or reserve fields until both application and processing fee have been received. Once received and processed, we will notify you with a confirmation and/or request further documentation.
Field Replacement Project
On February 11, 2014, voters approved three measures, two of which will directly fund the building of all-weather turf fields across the district. The Capital Construction Bond for $450 million will rebuild six schools and two new schools, all with all-weather turf fields. A portion of the Technology and Capital Projects Levy, $104 million over five years, will also be used to fund the replacement of 11 fields across the district with all-weather turf fields.
From 2015 to 2019, the district is planning to replace all 11 fields located at schools that have already been rebuilt. The additional eight fields that are part of the new schools construction projects covered by the 2008 and 2014 bonds will be completed by 2020.
Starting in 2016, the district plans on using coated rubber infill on synthetic fields.
