I write the above as I am "hip deep" in updating my syllabi for classes that started in about 10 days. The last time I taught this courses, they went off the rails and I did not bother to physically go to class for the rest of the semester.

I try to be precise in my rules since certain students will push the boundaries. These are typically the students where if they put the same effort into the class as trying to skirt the rules, they would be doing much better. For the vast majority of my students, some of my detailed rules are not needed but that is also true in life.
I don't envy you dealing with COVID and students right now!!

When I was in college, I did my share of skipping out on things, but always in the context of the rules. In one class, the professor even said, "The test is based on the book. I don't take attendance. Do what you want." I did, and earned $6/hr for six more hours that week (which in 1986 meant something). And I got my 4.0

I still have nightmares in which he changes the test dates and announced the new dates in a class I miss.
