Subject:Hogsmeade Weekend.
Security:Public

This is to alert staff and students that the upcoming Hogsmeade weekend has been canceled. I apologise for the inconvenience, as I do know that many of you were looking forward to visiting Hogsmeade at the end of the month. However, we have been asked by the Department of Magical Law Enforcement to keep students away from the area while their investigation is being held. I am complying with that request for the safety of the students, if for no other reason.

Subject:Welcome to a New Term. ((Locked to Teachers.))
Security:Public
Mood:cold

New Rules
- All professors, without exception, are to attend staff meetings this year. (This includes you, Sybill.)
- No student is allowed to wander the grounds without some kind of escort. This policy will remain in effect so long as Miss Gladspell is missing.
- I am requiring that House Heads be responsible for searching student dormitories. These searches are to be performed bimonthly, or at the discretion of the Head of the House in question.
- At no time during the school term is a Head of House allowed to leave the school grounds for more than a day, and that day must be cleared at least two weeks in advance.

Hogsmeade:
- We are in need of more volunteers for supervising Hogsmeade visits, due to the recent incidents. I would like to have at least four staff members accompanying the students off school grounds.
- The students should have partners. No student should be allowed to wander Hogsmeade alone at this time.
- The number of Hogsmeade visits may be diminished this term. This has not yet been decided. The first will be pushed back at least a week.


Please accept that these policies are necessary at this time. I expect to hear no argument.

I expect your book lists for next term on my desk by week's end. There is going to be a mandatory meeting on Saturday to meet our new Transfigurations Professor.


Please enjoy what remains of your summer.

Subject:A Reminder to the Students.
Security:Public
Mood:annoyed

The end of term is swiftly approaching, and as such I do realise that some of you will be feeling a mild bout of claustrophobia.

That said, do keep in mind that it is highly inappropriate to roam the halls after hours claiming to be "the next Harry Potter," even on the last Hogsmeade weekend of the year. If I must have this conversation with you again, Mr Wetzell, I will be most displeased. Mr Remkus, Miss Nickelston, and yourself shall be serving detention for the next week. Professor Grubbly-Plank has agreed to oversee it. Report to her office after your final classes. You should not wait until your trio is complete before doing so, going individually will suffice.

Subject:Reprimand.
Security:Public
Mood:disappointed

Certain behaviour and slips in security of late have been completely unacceptable for a school setting. While I certainly cannot say that an outside, possibly dangerous creature roaming the school grounds is unprecedented, I do hope that -- when classes resume -- I see a marked improvement in the behaviour of both staff and students.

In order to reinforce this goal, any student caught outside of his or her dormitories after hours will lose no less than thirty points for their House. I do realise that the winter months have made you all restless, but accepting thoughtless dares into forbidden areas is not the way to remedy this.

Subject:Happy Christmas.
Security:Public
Mood:Suspicious.

Tomorrow is, as I'm sure many of you can be counted upon to note, Christmas Day. It can only be the warmth and spirit of generosity that accompanies this thought which caused me to allow not one, but two of my House Heads to depart on some wayward mission through uncharted swamplands. It's certainly unprecedented and against protocol. The only reason that this is being allowed is the fact that the student to faculty ratio is greatly diminished over the holidays, and enough faculty members are staying to cover the loss. That said, any of the Slytherin or Gryffidnor who are currently here and have concerns of any sort, may bring them to either another member of the faculty or myself.

Subject:Brief Reminder to Our Faculty and Staff.
Security:Public
Mood:Cautionary.

Please feel free to encourage the students to use the adapted MagiNet technology which has been introduced to the school. It provides an excellent medium for communication, as well as a tool for information gathering. However, do keep in mind that we are to keep away from purely Muggle lines. This should nto be difficult, as the interface devices must be tampered with n order to access outside the Ministry-Approved MagiNet system. Any such tampering will result in the loss of 100 House points and possible expulsion from the school.

The faculty should also be reminded that personal interface devices (PIDs or LapTops), such as they are, will not be allowed on school grounds this year and should be confiscated on sight. Students may access the MagiNet using devices installed in the library, each of the House common rooms, and select faculty offices only.

For the safety of the students, this protocol must be strictly adhered to until such a time when proper information privacy wards can be placed on the devices. Such wards are being researched, and we are hoping that this may occur sometime during next Summer. This is of course an optimistic estimate and we certainly won't be holding our breaths.

Sincerely,

M. McGonagall
Headmistress
