A sample letter to your child's teacher for religious accomodation

Dear Mr. Lucas :

I am the father of Samira Khan, a student in your grade four class. As a Muslim, she is one of the millions of children in America (Muslim, Christian, Jewish, etc.) whose religious needs must be accommodated in public school.

Your role as Samira's teacher is crucial in ensuring she develops academically and in a well-adjusted manner. This means that her ability to function as a young Muslim is not compromised while learning and growing academically.

This is why I would like to meet with you to discuss what former President Bill Clinton has instructed schools and teachers to do about the religious needs of all students in America, and in particular, Samira's needs as a Muslim student in your class. In the long run, this will be of benefit to all students in your class and at Belleview elementary school who require religious accommodation.

I would also like to seek your advice about the issue of religious accommodation for Samira and her classmates.

If you can kindly contact me so that we may set up a meeting this week or next week, it would be greatly appreciated. You may call me at (123) 456-7890 in the daytime or (123) 012-3456 in the evenings.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely,

Ahmed Khan

We should implement (within acceptable boundry) the Islamic excersice in public school. We need to work together to established that Ramadhan month be placed in School Calendar, accordingly like anyother holiday e.g. Christmas, Hanukah, etc.May Allah, will guide us to make this implementation a reality. Amin.
