deadlines vs. learning

Well, it's time for midterm grades and I'm having the usual debate with
myself about the students' grades. So now I'm engaging all of you. My
dilemma is whether to allow (HS) students to turn work in weeks after the
supposed deadline, or tell them tough luck. My posted policy is that if
they miss the class deadline, they have one week to finish it on their
own time. Many of them don't meet the extension. However, I hate the
idea of letting them just slide by without producing, and missing out on
learning some of the basic skills they need in order to continue with the
more involved assignments.

Our students in general, as well as their parents, are extremely
irresponsible about deadlines. So for that, I feel I need to hold them
to it.

Any comments?
