For St. Francis Area Schools Employees

The purpose of Frontline Absence Management is to enter any absences for yourself, secure substitutes for your absences and to track absences in the Payroll process. Watch your district email to create your initial Frontline ID.

Please view the Employee Quick Start Guide for detailed instructions.


There are three (3) types of absences that require special arrangements with your supervisor. These absences still need to be entered into the Frontline system, but you would also need to fill out a Leave of Absence Request Form, found in the Forms & Documents Library under Leave of Absence/FMLA/FFCRA.

  • Absences for three (3) days or more. Contact Janet Anderson at 763-753-7058 regarding medical leaves.

Non-emergency leaves require a 30-day notice

  • General unpaid absences

  • Absences for jury duty


Please review your contract language regarding personal leave. Requests of 33-40 consecutive hours must be submitted on or before September 15 by teachers who have been employed with St. Francis Area Schools for over five (5) years.

How will my supervisor know that I am going to be gone?

  • Office staff will review daily absence logs

  • Supervisors will receive an email for all absences requiring approval

  • Please inquire at your school office for any site-specific instructions.

There is a cut off time for same day absences; 6:00 a.m. is recommended. If Frontline does not allow you to enter your absence, you must call your supervisor.

Once an absence has been approved or accepted by a substitute, you can no longer edit the absence. After that time, you will need to have your administrator edit the absence for you.

Select NO SUB NEEDED if that pertains to your absence.

For St. Francis Area Schools Substitutes

Use Frontline Absence Management to view and accept substitute opportunities. You may also accept by phone call (automated or “live”). Watch your email to create your initial Frontline ID.

Please view the Substitute Quick Start Guide for detailed instructions.
