School is back and it is no longer virtual.
And for the first time, students are allowed to carry cell phones to school in Saudi Arabia
The main reason for this is to be able to present their vaccination status on the Tawakkalna app and to allow staff to ensure that all health safety measures are in places.
The education ministry has also pointed out that the permission to carry cell phones to school does not mean that it encourages the usage of social media apps like Snapchat, Tiktok, and the likes during school.
In fact, students who do so can face juvenile prison time!
