  • Notes From Nurse Mathis 

    • Keep your child at home if they are sick. Children who feel poorly will not get anything out of their school day and could possibly spread illness to others.
    • Fever of 100 or greater with a sore throat and/or cough means your child should not be at school until they have been fever free for 24 hours without a fever reducer.
    • Teach your children to cough and sneeze into a tissue or their elbow. Wash hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water aren’t available.
    • Many illnesses are spread even before symptoms start. This is why cough/sneezing hygiene and hand washing are so importan
    • Go to for additional information on excludable illnesses. Kershaw County School District abides by these DHEC standards.

Principal's Message


    Mr. Yount This has been an unbelievable year so far. We had an incredible start and then an unexpected fall break. As far as I have been informed our Blaney family was very fortunate to survive the rains will minor damage. The school survive as well.
    We have now completed the first nine weeks. Please stay in touch with your child's teacher if you think there are academic issues occurring with your child.
    Due to the days we missed school because of the rain, we will now have to make up the following days: January 12, February 15 and March 25. There is a proposal to switch January 11 to a school day and January 15 to be a student holiday. I will keep you updated on this proposal.
    Be sure to check the school calendar for all the upcoming activities in November. I have noted a few here:
    November 2-6 CogAt and ITBS testing for second graders
    Nov. 4 First grade awards day at 1:30
    Nov. 5 Second grade awards day at 1:15 and Third grade awards day at 2:00
    Nov. 6 Fourth grade awards day at 1:15 and Fifth grade awards day at 2:00
    Nov. 7 PTA Christmas Bazaar 10:00-2:00
    Nov. 9 Make up Picture day
    Nov. 12 Chick-fil-A night 5:00-8:00
    Nov. 24 Donuts for Dads 7:15-7:45

A.P.'s Message

  • Krissi Butler Happy November! 

    First, I would like to thank our second grade students, teachers, testing monitors and parents for a successful week with ITBS and CogAT testing!   Ms. Warren and I cannot thank you enough for how smooth the testing was.  We are very proud of these students and know we will see great successes with the results.   Scores plan to be released between December-January.


    In addition, I have observed many of the classrooms.  Words cannot describe the learning that is taking place in each of the classrooms!!!  I am proud to be part of this learning community.  It makes me “Happy” and on the daily morning show I give “Shout Outs” to those students, teachers and classes that are learning, growing, and making Blaney Elementary the best elementary school in Kershaw County!  I know you cannot be prouder of your school, too!  GO WILDCATS!
