Over it

I, too, am over the no consequence thing. I'm also over the "let's bend over backwards to make sure kids get high grades rather than deal with the potentially upset parent" mentality. I feel like grades are becoming more and more inflated, and I don't think standards based grading with the numbers is a way to go either. No matter what system you use, there will still be problem if you cave to parents. I seriously feel that since "rigor" has become more common in schools, it's actually gotten less rigorous.

Do you have a late work policy? If so, I'd say you have a late work policy and plan on enforcing it. Now, if you are 100% online, I do understand that there should be some grace, but those kids also needed to make an effort before that!
