Students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry:
As many of you may have heard, the rumours that Hogsmeade is being rebuilt are true. The Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge has ordered this reconstruction to be a top priority and has decreed that the village will be once again habitable by 26 February.
While many of the shops and places may not be open, most of you, including myself, will be quite pleased to hear that the Three Broomsticks and Honeydukes are among the businesses that will reopen at this time. The faculty of Hogwarts and myself, have decided to allow, under the strictest security, a Hogsmeade weekend the Saturday of 28 February. This will be a shorter period of time than is usual, but will be an opportunity for those of you second year or above to escape the castle for a few hours.
Please prepare accordingly and begin to save your galleons to support Honeydukes grand reopening. You can bet that I will be getting a chocolate frog or two at this time.
Professor Albus Dumbledore
Headmaster Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
