My confirmation is awaited.this incident relates to my school's science lab.

3 days back i used science lab to do some english activity with children that needs concentration,after taking lab assistant's permission.lab is located in a quiet i chose it.other areas are full of noisy children who R mostly out of classrooms.

lab assistant had left school a little before school's closing time,because he had some work.b4 leaving he'd requested me to lock lab after doing my activity.

after finishing activity,i put off fans,lights,locked the lab & gave keys to lab incharge(female teacher)who was in school.

on all other days only the lab assistant or the lab incharge open & lock it in morning & afternoon.but on that day I had to lock it since i was using it till the school's closing time & the lab assistant had left school before closing time due to some work.

however i made a mistake.i forgot to close lab's for next 2 days(holidays)they remained open.luckily,they have iron grills with v.little gaps b/w no tresspass mice/cat entered.

still i got this notice.i have to give written explanation for my carelessness,even though i had apologized to vice principal orally.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Having already apologized to the Vice Principal orally, you may apologize to the Vice Principal and the School In-charge in writing for the unintentional lapse on your part. You should specifically mention in your memo that nothing has gone missing in the College as a result of your having left the windows open. You may state further that you will be very careful in future and that such a lapse will never recur.
