That's not safe for any of the children be they visually impaired or not. 
Does the school have anywhere that they can build a playground?  Have any of 
the Parents tried to get together and puts any plans together to build a 
playground at the school if their is the place for one?  I know that can be 
done because when I was growing up the neighborhood elementary school that 
all my other siblings attended didn't have a playground until the parents 
got together and decided to build one.
