Unpublish an assignment with submissions

 How do I close out an assignment when the class has completed it?  I don't want to remove it, just unpublish it.  It says I can't unpublish because there are submissions.

Welcome to the Canvas Community!!!

Once an assignment has submissions it cannot be unpublished.  You can use the Until date to stop access to the assignment at that date.

Why is it that I can delete an assignment with submissions but I cannot unpublish it? Since the former seems more permanent than the latter, this is a puzzling design choice.
