Excessively Long Waits for Assignment Tab (freezing)

There are 180 days in the school year for my kids (I homeschool), and I use the Modules tab to separate subjects, and the Assignments tab to separate each day. That way when I go to publish the next day's work (because I can't schedule publishing; I have to do it manually), I just click on each publish button next to each day's task in the Assignment tab.  However, now that I have over a hundred days worth, and multiple assignments for each day, the Assignments tab freezes. It takes anywhere between 5-20 minutes to load. I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer. Same problem in all of them. For each browser, it warns me that the page has trouble loading and asks me if I want to wait, or to close. So I choose wait, and have to wait it out.

 

Does Canvas have a fix? The Modules tab works just fine, and it's the same amount of Assignments/Quizzes. It must have to do with the way Canvas loads on the Assignments tab.
