Cancelled classes at your fingertips.

Say Goodbye To Schoology Lists!

Welcome to abSENT! We're a mobile app that notifies Newton Public Schools students when their teachers are absent.

Long gone are the mornings of scrolling through Schoology, praying that your teacher is absent, only to miss their name in a sea of absent teachers. Long gone are the times when you walk into your class, only to realize that your teacher is absent.

With abSENT, these days are, well... absent.


We got sick of having to check Schoology. The mobile interface is non-existent, the lists do not load on data (or even school WiFi!), and squinting to find your teacher in a list of 25 is just painful.

Thus, abSENT was born.


All this, and it's completely free. Free, free, free, free, free.

How It Works

It's pretty simple, really. Every morning, abSENT downloads the absence list from Schoology and sends it to your phone.

Then, the abSENT app compares it with your list of teachers and sends you a notification. That's it!

You don't have to trust us. All the code that powers abSENT is available on GitHub. Puruse it and make changes if you'd like! You're also welcome to use the API.
