  • 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 Message from the Principal

    I looked at my calendar recently and it read MARCH. Since the weather has been so warm, I just knew it was May. I think our children are feeling the same way. It feels like a lot of us have summeritis. Please continue to keep your children in a good routine, homework, some play time, dinner and a regular bedtime. We really appreciate your assistance.
    It is that time of the year when I begin to make preparations for 2017-18. Please remember, I do not take teacher requests. You may send me the characteristics your child needs in a teacher. Please do not send the name of the teacher you want or don't want. You can send me this information by email at, call at 803-438-3241 or set up an appointment. 
    March is a very busy month at Blaney, please check the newsletter for all the dates but here are a few important ones:

    A Message from the Assistant Principal

    Spring testing season is upon us!  These are state standardized tests that students are required to take.  Remember a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast helps the brain get ready for the day!  These tests are not timed and the students have the entire day to complete the test.  Please keep this in mind when scheduling appointments as they cannot split the tests into two days.


    Here is our testing schedule here at Blaney…


    Wednesday, March 22nd   5th Grade   Lexile Linking Study

    Wednesday, April 19th   3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Field Testing in ELA (Reading and Writing)
