I think that you could
add a small switch next to the light
so as to turn the light off and on as needed ??

The ceiling "light" may have a hot up there all the time no matter if switch is on or off.
My point is they "may" use the ground as the switched wire.

You may have to get a step ladder up there and check.

There also may be "hot" wires up there that are not switched by the light switch.
