Try to use nested call on slideUp.complete, for example:
function hideElement(elementIdx) {
    if (elementIdx < $(".elementClass").length) {
        $(".elementClass").eq(elementIdx).slideUp(4000, function() { hideElement(elementIdx + 1); });

Open in new window

and start hiding from the 2nd element
