  • A Note From Nurse Mathis

    How can you help prevent the spread of the flu ?  The Center for Disease Control recommends “Take 3 Actions:”

    1. Vaccinate- talk to you doctor about getting a flu vaccination

    2. Take everyday preventative actions. Avoid close contact with ill
    persons. Keep children home if they have a fever (100 degrees or
    higher), until they are fever free without the use of fever
    reducing medications like Tylenol or Motrin for 24 hours . Cover
    coughs and sneezes with a tissue or upper sleeve. Wash hands
    frequently with soap and water or alcohol hand rub. Clean and
    regularly disinfect high touch surfaces.

    3. If you are sick, seek medical advice and take antiviral medications if

    Per DHEC exclusion guidelines, if your child has had a fever of 100
    degrees or higher, they must be fever free for 24 hours without the
    use of fever reducing medications such as Tylenol or Motrin, in order
    to return to school.

    Please let the school know immediately if your child has been
    diagnosed with the flu. DHEC requires us to report cases to assist
    with tracking. Thanks for helping us keep our students and staff

  • 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 in the videos below. 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


    It is February!   The Heart of Elgin is shining!  Please continue sending your children to school ready to learn by making sure they have a decent bedtime, a fulfilling dinner and breakfast, and a positive attitude!   It makes a world of difference in the effort they put forth during the instructional day.

    Cell phones- Please understand that students may have cell phones, but they MUST be turned off and in their bookbags.  If students do have them out during school hours, they will be confiscated and turned into a school administrator.  The administrator will then call the parents.  The phone will need to be picked up by you, the parent, during school hours.

    -- Mrs. Butler
