    is this sentence correct?

    teacher, is this sentence correct? Do I need to add in "that morning"? Thank you.

    I will work from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. this Friday as there is a fire alarm inspection in my building that morning.

    What is the connection? You'll come in after the inspection? You'll come in to DO the inspection?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Maybe it means that the inspection will delay work (because it will include a drill, for instance) and therefore he'll have to stay later than usual.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    That is correct. Because of the inspection in my building at 8 a.m., I will have to come in to work at 9:30 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m. Thank you.

    So you'll come in at 09.30, 9.30 am, 9.30 a.m., or 9.30 in the morning.

    Please remember to give your thread a relevant title (see my signature, below). '9.30 am in the morning?' would have been good.
