  • 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.

This is a great time for you to touch base with your child's teacher. If we all work together all of our students will be successful.
