Hello OSUED Families,

Below are our tentative options for students when we open school this year. Given the ever changing guidelines and availability of resources these plans may be updated over the next several weeks. Please consider which option would work best for your child. We are asking that you contact the school this week if you are interested in the Remote Synchronous, or Vt Virtual Learning Cooperative. This will provide us with some idea of how many students we need to plan for in person learning. Please see the choices below in the link.


Hello Lakeview, Hardwick and Woodbury Elementary families,

We invite you to a community forum on Wednesday, July 29th at 6:00pm. This will be a remote meeting with the option of joining by video or call in (see link below). The forum will provide an opportunity for families to provide input and share ideas about how we can provide the best possible school experience while meeting the CDC and State Guidelines on reopening. We will be sharing the Guidelines and virtual invite reminder in a separate email and also posting on our website. 

If you’re unable to attend and would like to discuss or provide input, please reach out to the school by phone or email. 

We hope to hear from you next Wednesday!


Justine Guthrie, Principal of Lakeview and Woodbury

Patrick Pennock, Principal of Hardwick

Drop off/Pick up

The next date for drop off/pick up is Friday, June 19th. Please reach out to Christine if you have questions. All devices (chromebooks, ipads,etc.) need to be returned to the school. This would be a good time to return any library books as well!


Report Cards

We are planning on mailing report cards on June 22nd. Class homeroom placement for students entering 1st through 6th will be included with the report cards. Incoming kindergarten will be sent separately at a later date.
