  • 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

  • Krissi Butler

    A Message from the Assistant Principal


    WOW!  I cannot believe it is May already!  We have so much to do between now and the end of the year!  This is the season for state testing and we have the SC READY ELA and Math to do at the beginning of this month!  

    Please remember these dates:

    Thursday, May 4th SC READY ELA Session I

    Friday, May 5th SC READY ELA Session II

    Tuesday, May 9th SC READY Math

    A good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast in the morning helps students focus and their brain works more effectively if they are not tired or hungry.  Please keep in mind that if your child is absent those days, it is required by law that they make-up test on another day.  

    There are also tons of activities throughout the remainder of the school year that your child may be scheduled to participate in.  Please look at our school calendar on this website or check with your child’s teacher so you or your child do not miss any important events!

    -- Mrs. Butler
