After a meeting with the Board of Governors and the teachers of Hogwarts, we have come to a decision to close the school until further notice.
The Hogwarts Express will be arriving at Hogsmeade at 3:30pm to pick up all remaining students. Until then, please conduct yourself as befitting a student of this great school.
Times like these are unspeakably difficult. Please try to remember that most times a storm cloud is simply a storm cloud. Seek comfort in your friends and family, and do not allow fear to take control of you.
Safe journey and be well,
Professor Minerva McGonagall, Headmistress, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
