Late last night I received a call from the day care letting me know they had to close down for a possible mold found in one of the rooms. My weekend care works for another family during the week and I didn't have a back up put in place. My only option was to call in and let staffing know I wouldn't be at work. Even though I have a legitimate reason I know it doesn't look good at all.
Today I received another call from the day care that they will be closed for a little over a week. That means I have 3-4 work days coming up that I have to find an alternate plan. Right now my game plan is to try to swap my shifts for the weekend so I can use my weekend person. My second option is to start interviewing new people for those days.
Have you dealt with a similar problem? How did you handle it?
