Adding new oil to oil instead of getting oil changed?

Hello all! Before you jump down my throat, this is not regular practice. I routinely change my oil every 3500-4000 miles. This time around, it’s been about 4200 miles since my last oil change (dipstick shows about 1qt low). I have an oil change scheduled for Monday, but something came up that’s forcing me to drive about 500 miles this weekend. Would it be safe to add additional oil as band-aid fix for the weekend?
