The Hogwarts Faculty hopes you have enjoyed your holidays at home. The Hogwarts Express will leave from Platform 9 3/4 at 11:00 AM on 10 January to bring you back to school for second term. Please continue to remember that pets are acceptable, but other substances such as Firewhiskey, dungbombs, and other items on Mr Filch's list are not. I should hate to see any of you obtain a detention this term.
A change has been made in the school system. Due to the current political climate and as an extra safety precaution, the Hogwarts faculty has decided that all incoming Owls to each student will be checked first before being allowed to reach the addressee. This should not effect any mail from friends or parents and is implimented only to keep students safe from those who might intend to cause harm through Owls.
We look forward to your return to school and wish you all a safe journey from Platform 9 3/4 to Hogwarts.
Professor Albus P. B. W. Dumbledore
Headmaster Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
