    granting

    Teacher, is this sentence OK?

    As discussed, my working hours on Monday has been changed and I will work from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays. Thank you for granting my request.

    They have been. Otherwise it's OK, provided that the conversation did end up in the granting of the request; otherwise it should be 'Thank you for considering my request'.

    Re: granting

    The first half of the sentence sounds as if this is a temporary agreement referring to only one Monday ("... my working hours on Monday") but the second half sounds as if it is a permanent change to the hours every Monday ("... I will work from 10am to 6pm on Mondays").

    I assume it's a permanent change. If that's the case, I would start with "As discussed, my working hours on Mondays have​ been changed ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
