Here we go again. We have learned that the Metro Nashville Schools have formed an official committee to act as a liaison between The Islamic Center of Nashville, Masjid Al-Farooq and Masjid Al- Islam. The purpose of the committee is for the Metro schools to “meet the needs” of muslim children attending Nashville Public Schools. It also is calling for the accommodations of muslim children so they can maintain their faith and beliefs.
Below is a memo regarding Metro Nashville Public Schools:
Education Resource Committee for Muslim Students
Per our last update on the meeting with Dr. Register by representatives from Islamic Center of Nashville, Salahadeen Center, Masjid Al-Farooq and Masjid Al-Islam, an official committee has been formed to act as a liason and educational resource for Muslim families and Metro Nashville Public Schools to meet the needs fo students while maintaining their Islamic identity. For more information you may contact any of the centers or Sr. Berthena or Sr. Kasar.
Prayer Accommodations at School
For your children’s interest, accommodations for students taking a few minutes to catch their Dhuhr prayer are available. Please contact your child’s appropriate teacher of that particular period via email (emails can be found on metro’s website, www.mnps.org) and copy your school’s guidance counselor. Your child can also personally request the teacher as well. Letters for prayer arrangements during Ramadan (along with PE and lunch alternatives such as the library) have already been sent to all the schools. Letters for other specific accommodation have been revised and will be sent out.
