  • 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.

Principal's Message

    A Message from the Principal

    I hope you had a wonderful summer and ready to get started. Our teachers are hard at work getting their classrooms ready.
    We are going to do something new this year. We will have our traditional Back to School night on August 15 from 5:30-7:00. This will be a chance for parents an students to see the classroom and meet their teacher.  The new event is Parent Orientation Nights. Each grade level will have a special evening for parents (if possible no students) to come and hear the expectations for the current grade level. I know many of you have students in multiple grades and it will be a burden to come different nights but each presentation will be specific for that grade level.
    All Parent Orientations will be from 6:00-7:00 in the gym
    Kindergarten- August 10 (6:00-7:00)
    First Grade- August 8 (6:00-7:00)
    Second Grade- August 16 (6:00-7:00)
    Third Grade- August 14 (6:00-7:00)
    Fourth grade- August 22 (6:00-7:00)
    Fifth Grade- August 24 (6:00-7:00)
    School starts on August 17. Door open at 7:15 and students are dismissed at 2:45
    Please check out information on this site about arrival and dismissal procedures.

A.P.'s Message

  • Krissi Butler

    A Message from the Assistant Principal


    A BIG WILDCAT Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year here at Blaney Elementary School!  I have seen lots of smiles from the teachers and students as we all begin the learning process again.  Parents, I know you are a little apprehensive.   However, I know you are also excited at the same time as your child embarks onto a new grade level and adventure.  

    Our students are in great hands and our teachers will take care of them like their own.   Keep open communication with your child's teacher via telephone, email, class webpage, and especially parent-teacher conferences.   Remember to show your children the importance of getting an education.  Demonstrate this at home whether it would be reading newspaper or counting out objects or looking at a store receipt and how sales tax plays a big part in expenses.  If you share the desire of learning with your child, they will see that education is a powerful tool.  Keep in mind that "The Road to Success is Always Under Construction" and that applies to the parents and teachers as well.  We are always learning!  All of us here at Blaney wish you and your family a fabulous school year!

    -- Mrs. Butler
