My parents have taken away my computer. I have online school tomorrow, but the only other device I have is this old iphone, which won’t support Microsoft Teams.

Is it legal for my parents to do this? And what should I do?

What is their reason for taking away your computer? Unless it was extreme and depending on your age I would be contacting your school and saying that you have no way of doing your work.

AFAIK yes, you legally have to participate in online school. It's treated the same as not attending school in person without good reason.
Your parents could face fines/ being taken to court.

damn what did you do? maybe email the school like someone else mentioned-the school should be able to help u in this however it does seem quite extreme that ur parents took away ur computer considering the fact that they know that thats the only way u can do school work

If you phone your school in the morning they may be able to lend you a laptap/tablet.

Is there a possibility that they will give it back tomorrow morning before school starts?

What did they give as the reason for taking it?

Did you do anything bad such as searching inappropriate content? Assuming not, then there isnt much reason behind it.

Try asking your parents why they took it.
