Canvas changes "until" dates on discussion board on its own

Say I create a discussion board and set the availability dates from September 1 at 5:00 p.m. to September 7 at 5:00 p.m. I save the discussion board and can clearly see the "until" date says September 7 at 5:00 p.m. when I look at my list of discussion boards. For some reason I can't explain, Canvas has been changing the "until" date all on its own. The change is consistent - it always ends up changing to the following day at 4:59 p.m. so in this case to September 8 at 4:59 p.m. Does anyone know why? This is very frustrating because I have to monitor the discussion boards for this change and it confuses students (or makes me look inept). I've tried looking for a solution or seeing if there is a setting I need to change but so far I've had no luck. P.S. this is happening in more than one class. Thanks for any insight!
