Districtwide School Closure for Thursday, December 1, 2022. Learn more about this closure

It’s the season when we all take more time to recognize the gifts that others bring into our lives. Your students’ teachers often appear in those you wish to thank.

Please remember that while we encourage gratitude, our school board and the teachers’ employment contract set limitations. The board discourages gifts, especially anything with financial value. The contract states that any gift over $50 constitutes a conflict of interest.

Everyone at Newport appreciates your recognition above all else sharing gratitude in notes, cards, and letters hold great value.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
