What should i do? Please help me, i need my phone for my online class.

    If the rice thing didn't work, try holding the volume down button while holding power, for 10 seconds, or until the flickering stops.  If the flickering stops, put the phone back in the rice for 24 hours.  You can also use those silica gel packs that comes along with some products, those will also absorb the moisture.

    Holding the volume down button and power, is like a hard reboot, and my thinking is that the phone is probably off, but stuck in some cycle.  It happened to me once, when I turned my phone off, turned it back on, and all I got was a solid red light, I had to hold those buttons down to get it back to working order.

    Oops. I would investigate and troll yahoo answers first. A colonoscopy is a procedure to examine the inside of your colon (intestine) with a scope. A scope is a flexible tube with a small light and camera on the end. Look for the answer there.

    Explain this to your teacher. Perhaps ask to use the device you are using now to post this question here. Your phone is most likely done and another is needed; make sure the next one is waterproof.

    DONT CHARGE IT! Do not plug it in whatsoever. You could short it out. You're gonna have to let it sit for more than 12hrs. Probably more like 4 days in the rice. Use a blow dryer also. If you see any condensation anywhere then there's still moisture and needs more time to dry. I would reach out to your teacher and explain your situation. They will have to understand. Not every parent has money to shell out on the spot to replace a phone now a days. Check the used market for another if you need to replace it. Facebook marketplace is a decent place to start. Just be savvy about it and let your parents know. Best of luck.
