Police are looking for a man who kept circling around Delmae Elementary School on South Cashua Drive in Florence Thursday afternoon.
Students were on the playground for recess, when the driver began driving too fast around the property.
Staff members moved the students to safety, police were notified, and the school was placed on lockdown until it was determined that it was safe.
"We are grateful for law enforcement officers' immediate response to today's incident," said Principal Roy Ann Jolley in a statement.
Police say they have a license tag number on the vehicle, and officers will stay on campus as a precaution until classes are dismissed.
