SBS 2011 Hybrid with Office 365...

We have a SBS 2011 with 40 users,
Is there a way to make it hybrid with office 365, they want to migrate to the cloud only two users, is this possible?
I know I can make an office 365 account, add the domain, and foward the email to the cloud of those two users, the problem only is if the account is not hybrid, they will not be able to see shared calendar and shared contacts of the sbs server.
Is there a way to make them hybrid using sbs 2011?

If you use any of the SBS wizards or features then I wouldn't recommend it.  You can follow standard hybrid deployment guidance and Exchange 2010 on SBS will allow this.  However because SBS was not designed with this in mind, most of the integration wizards stop working and you'll get odd event log errors that makes monitoring far more difficult as well.  For hybrid, I strongly recommend migrating to 2012 R2. That way if you still want the dashboard and anywhere access features made popular by SBS, you can simply enable that role. And The essentials experience role has built-in support for managing O365 subscriptions.

A hybrid deployment will work. Many SBS features will not. That's the trade-off you'll choose to make.
