Reducing Extension Emails with Flexible Due Dates

How are you staying afloat this year?
This semester I put on my syllabus and the assignment instructions exactly when the due date was, how long after the dropbox on Moodle would be open, and how many marks would be taken off for late submissions.
This REALLY reduced the number of student emails asking for extensions. They already knew that I would be flexible and allow them to hand in an assignment late (for ANY reason) and the student work on the late assignments has still been excellent.
