What do I do if I miss a shift?

Each agency’s policy on absences, missing shifts, etc differs. The first thing all students should do is notify your agency as soon as you know you will miss a shift (not after you’ve missed or during the time you’re supposed to be there). When you do contact the agency, already have a plan in mind for how you’re going to make up the missed shift (make sure this plan also adheres to the guidelines set by your agency). For example, are you planning on staying longer next time? Would you like to go in on an additional day? Or is there a big project/event that you’d like to help with to make up for missed time?
