Dear ____________ [Write here the employer name]
This is to inform you that I request a change in my shift schedule. Presently my work time here is 2 am to 10 pm. As my son is going to start his schooling from 15th September 2018, I needed to take care of him with preparing breakfast, lunch and most importantly sparing time with him after his arrival from school. It would not be possible if I work here during those time. So I request you to change my working schedule from 9 am to 5 pm so that I can take care of him easily as his school timing is from 8 am to 4 pm. In the evening he will be received by his grandfather and there will be no problem until (5 pm) I go home. I have also discussed this matter with my immediate superior and he said no problem and instructed me to write a shift change request letter. Please accept this letter of request and make a decision to favor me. Thanking you!
I would be happy to meet you and give you any further information if you require and answer questions or discuss alternative solutions you may suggest. I can be reached at my phone number 444-123-4567 and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org [Write your own email ID here]
