I don't need SLA but it was the only section that was offered. Can I skip the SLA workshops?

No, all students who register for an SLA section are required to attend the SLA workshops until the professor has established the first baseline grade. Students who maintain above the professor's cut-off grade in the class are then considered voluntary and are not required to attend the SLA workshops. Voluntary students are encouraged to attend. If a student is not meeting the requirements to become 'voluntary', the student is required to attend every SLA workshop offered until the requirements are met to become 'voluntary'.
