  • 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 Message from the Principal

    March is famous for the NCAA Basketball Tournament appropriately named March Madness. I think that is a good title for public school during March as well. Our students are getting tired and need a break and so does our faculty and staff. We really need your help keeping your students focused and prepared each day. We will be doing everything possible to our students ready for end of the year testing.
    Thank you for your support of the FunRun. It was exciting for our students. We are very proud of our Archery Team. They won first place in the Region and will be competing for the State Championship later this month.
    We will be sponsoring our annual Blood Drive on Friday, March 9 from 7:00am-12:30 pm in the gym. Please call the school at 803-438-3241 and Mrs. Ripley can sign you up or go to sponsor Blaney.
    Here are some important dates for March:
    March 2 Read Across America/Dr. Suess' Birthday
    March 9 Blood Drive 7:00am-12:30pm

A.P.'s Message

  • Krissi Butler

    A Message from the Assistant Principal


    Students that show respect towards adults can be molded into productive and respectful adults.  Teaching children how to say “please”, “thank you”, “sir”, or “ma’am” goes a long way.  It is important for children to display such manners in the school setting.  Each student and teacher that enters our doors at Blaney Elementary has a job to do.  Teachers plan lessons so each student can learn in their classroom.  That is the teacher’s job.  Each student has the job of completing homework, classwork, and listening to their teacher.  If the jobs of the teacher and the students are not complete, it makes it difficult for every student in the classroom to learn.   Talking back and arguing with the teacher is disheartening as they are each working towards the your child’s success.  Please have your child work on having a kind and respectful attitude towards adults and students.  It makes the world a better place! <3

    -- Mrs. Butler
