Background provided by Instructor: This email was received on a Saturday night – the night before a paper was due. The paper was assigned months ago.

Hi, this is not (student’s name), this is her father. Unfortunately, my daughter is at a hotel for the weekend that does not have Internet, so she asked me to log into her account and email you to let you know she will be submitting her paper (due tomorrow) when she returns to campus on Monday.  Thank you for your understanding.
