  • 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

    Here it is, it is October already!  Routines are in place and expectations are high!  

    Attention 2nd grade families

    All second grade students in South Carolina will be taking the CogAT and ITBS test October 24-28 November.  The CogAT is a norm-referenced aptitude test, and ITBS is an achievement test.  The purpose of testing is to identify students for the gifted and talented program.  Our gifted and talented program is called SEAGUL, which begins in the third grade.  

    It is extremely important that all of our students attend school these days.  (Testing starts at 8:15am and will be completed by 11am each day.)  Please try to schedule all appointments after testing. We must test every second grade child. Please make sure your child is on time and has had a good breakfast.  Testing monitors are needed.  Please contact Krissi Butler if you are available 438-3241 ext. 2405.

    -- Mrs. Butler
