  • Arrival & Departure Procedure

    Car Blaney Elementary is the largest elementary school in Kershaw County, and we are responsible for the safe dismissal of nearly 800 bus riders, walkers, and car riders. Your child's safety is our top priority. In order to safely and quickly dismiss your car riding child, please review and follow the traffic pattern shown on this Car Rider Map. Please contact the school office or your child's teacher if you have any questions.


    Parents of Afternoon Car Riders

    We are asking that you leave your child's name tag VISIBLE until your child is safely in your car. This practice will allow the duty personnel who are on the curb a visual and assistance in calling and helping your child into the car each afternoon.  This will make for a smoother, quicker dismissal.  Thank you for your assistance.

A.P.'s Message

    A Message from the Assistant Principal

    Happy Holidays Blaney Wildcats! 


    It is hard to believe it is December already as our school year is flying by!  Please remind your students to check the “Lost and Found” daily if they are missing jackets, sweatshirts, lunchboxes, etc.!  It would be most helpful if you child’s name was written on these items so they can be quickly returned to the rightful owner!


    Remind your students that great choices and great behaviors are key to their success!  We want our students to grow into successful citizens!  Earning “Smileys” from your teachers show your success and I love sharing the “smileys” on the Blaney Morning Show!


    I hope to see you out in the community during the Elgin Christmas Tree Lighting, the Catfish Stomp, and the Lights of Lugoff Parade this month!  These events make our community so great!


    Merry Christmas to each and every one of you!


    -- Mrs. Butler
