The long is due to circumstances in the outside world I cannot allow anyone to enter or leave this castle for any reason whatsoever, including Care of Magical Creatures or Herbology classes. If a student needs to leave they need to seek permission with their Head of House and then myself, as well as have their parent/guardian come to Hogwarts to pick them up personally.
The short of it is we're all under lock down.
Needless to say this weekend's trip to Hogsmeade, as well as all other further trips, are canceled.
Any student caught on the grounds or in Hogsmeade will be severely punished, and I mean this. There will be no leniency, we cannot afford to gamble your safety.
Curfew will begin immediately after dinner. All those caught out of their respective common areas after curfew will be given a series of detention.
Defensive charms will be taught immediately in Defense Against the Dark Arts and Charms. There will be a letter sent home to all those with wizarding parents, alerting them to the lock down and telling them how to properly protect their home. All Muggleborn students will have members of this staff come to their homes to do the charms for them.
That is all.
You wished to speak with me? Drop by my office before dinner if you still want to have a chat.
Dr. Artemus Wright has gone missing.
