The attack happened. People were hurt. Lives were changed.
But it's not helping anyone to panic, especially in public. If you need to vent or anything, my dorm is always open. Or just vent in private... but Dumbledore wants to stress the importance of staying -calm- and -normal-.
Quidditch practices and games are continuing as normal. There will be a Hogsmeade visit next week. Life is moving along -- don't be left behind.
The Ministry (and more importantly, Dumbledore) are doing everything possible to keep us safe. It's not our job to panic or spaz out. Yes, there -may- come a time when we will have to band together -- but for now, we need only continue as normal.
I also must stress the lock-down rule. If I catch you breaking this rule, I have no alternative than to give you a week's worth of detentions with Snape.
I'm sorry. But safety is important. Stay calm... everything's going to be okay.
Slytherins -- watch your tongue. Particularly you, Blaise Zabini. I can still give you detentions.
Merlin... I have a terrible migraine. And I can't remember anything about last night...
[Private: Professor Snape]
There isn't much more time before break ends... is there anything else I can do to lift my grade?
