If I get another rude email from a student demanding that I grade their late work this second, I’m about to put my foot through my computer screen. We reviewed netiquette with these jokers already.

Set an auto reply. If someone emails me it says: I am out of the office from 6 pm to 9 am, if you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.

I just truly don't respond when I get emails like that. A bunch of mine get a lot of pressure from parents about their grades still being missing and that's a shame, but you have to learn how to talk to people. I'm on spring break and if you are, I'd encourage you not to do school work if you avoid it right now. Now that we're teaching from home, I feel like it's more difficult than ever to maintain boundaries, so I hope that you're able to put up boundaries you're comfortable with (and that you get support from admin in doing so.)

My reply in that situation is usually an explanation that it’s only fair for me to have as long to grade an assignment as they had to complete the work in the first place. That usually shuts them up.
