Islamic Classes Regulations

Islamic Classes Schedule & Tardiness

Students must arrive on time. Tardiness will be recorded and will result in a conference with the Islamic Classes directors. The Islamic Classes will follow the following schedule: 10am to 1pm.

 

Attendance

Regular attendance at Islamic Classes is very important. Please help your child to develop a commitment for regular Islamic Classes attendance and getting to Islamic Classes on time. Students who are absent will be expected to make up all missed work.

 

Payment

Payment is due at the beginning of each month. If your child is sick and does not attend, the payment will not be dropped and no compensation will be made for the hours missed. You can pay via any of the following ways:

  1. Send us a check or money order in the name of New Haven Islamic Center. Please put the following in the memo: Islamic Classes Payment.
  2. Pay online:
  • Go to www.nhicct.org
  • Click on Donation.
  • Make a credit or debit card payment via PayPal and mention Islamic Classes Payment.
  1. Pay cash on Saturday during Islamic Classes session. In the event that you can’t find a committee member, then please place your payment in an envelope and write the child/children’s full name on it. Failure to do so will result in not applying the payment to the proper account.


Please note: Always keep your receipt as proof of payment. You may request a receipt on Saturday if you opted for payment methods 1 or 2.

 

Dress Code

Good personal grooming habits are an essential part of Islam. Clothing should not be a distraction or point of competition. In order to further this goal, the Islamic Saturday Islamic Classes adopted a Islamic Classes uniform policy. Boys and girls must wear Islamically suitable clothing. Girls are required to wear hijab as part of the Islamic Classes uniform. Shorts are not allowed for all ages.

 

General Expectations

  • Students must be walked to their appropriate classroom by an adult who brings them to Islamic Classes.
  • Parents should stay with their children if no teacher is present. We are not responsible for unsupervised children.
  • Parents should emphasize to their children that running is not allowed in the Masjid and noise level must be low at all times.
  • The Islamic Saturday Islamic Classes faculty and staff strongly encourage each parent to sit and talk to their children about their learning experiences that day and help them with their homework.
  • If there are any questions about the courses or homework, it should be referred to the child’s teacher.
  • If there are any suggestions or recommendations, it should be referred to the Principal.
  • Islam emphasizes respect in its teaching. Therefore, we expect our students to show respect to teachers and classmates.
  • Neither food nor snacks are allowed in classrooms and there will be NO lunch time.

Behavior

The behavior of students in the Islamic Classes should conform to Islamic Standards. Students should promote a productive environment and show respect to all other members of the Islamic Classes including personnel, teachers, and other students. One of the major objectives of the Islamic Classes is to foster an environment of Islamic behavior and manners. In such an environment, behavior such as use of obscene, vulgar, abusive, inflammatory or disrespectful language and/or gestures is inappropriate, will not be tolerated and may result in expulsion from Islamic Classes.
