Collection of Personal Information

SLS collects personal information from you that you choose to give us, such as your name, child’s name, birth date, class information, address, phone number, email, credit card information and other information about your family.    Whether you choose to give SLS this information is completely up to you, but SLS may not be able to provide you with certain services (e.g., process your online donation or your application) or information without this information.   


Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

SLS may use your personal information to fulfill a request from you, such as process an online donation, or consider your child for admission, and for other SLS internal purposes (such as for use in SLS operations, fundraising and strategic planning).  SLS may also use your personal information to contact you about school-related activity, news and events, and to send you periodic communications about other programs, events or services we think may be of interest to the SLS community.  


SLS will not sell your personal information to anyone for any reason.  Other than in the online directories available in the Parent Portal (described in the “Parent Portal” section below), any personal information you provide to SLS will not be shared by SLS to third parties unless you have given SLS permission to do so or except as expressly provided for below. 


SLS may share your information with individuals or companies that perform services for us, such as our school photographers, web site hosts, database providers, communication services, credit card and payment processors, and financial institutions.


If any or all of the assets of SLS are acquired by, or merged with another entity, we will share some or all of your information with this entity and/or your personal information may then be owned by that entity.


SLS may also disclose your personal information if SLS believes that such action is needed to: (1) comply with the law or the legal process, (2) protect against misuse or unauthorized use or access of this Website, or (3) protect the personal safety, property, or rights of any person.  


Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

As visitors navigate through the Website, certain non-personal information may be collected automatically by SLS and/or the company who hosts the Website for SLS.  (Non-personal information is information that does not identify the specific user.)  Specifically, cookies, web beacons, and other automated devices and third party services (such as Google Analytics or Adobe SiteCatalyst) may be used to collect information about our visitors, such as the pages they view on the Website, search terms used, browser type, IP address, operating system, referring URL and the date, length and time of the visit.  This data is used to improve the content of the Website and helps us administer the Website and school communications and analyze trends. 


Updating and Correcting Your Personal Information

If you wish to update or edit your personal information, you may do so by contacting SLS at the SLS Office (see above).


Parent Portal

The Website includes a secure password-protected area of the site referred to as the “Parent Portal.”  The Parent Portal is intended to serve as a resource for the parents of current SLS students.  If you are provided access to the Parent Portal, please do not share your unique log in and password.  You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login and password, and for restricting access to your computer. You also agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your login or password.  You agree to immediately notify SLS of any unauthorized use of your password or login or any other breach of security.  


The Parent Portal includes online directories of currently enrolled SLS families and a list of staff accessible to members of the SLS community with Parent Portal user accounts.   If you are a parent and you prefer your family’s information to not be included in the online directories (or for the information to be limited in some manner), or if you wish to update any of this information, you can contact us at the SLS Office (see above).


If you need assistance logging in or using the Parent Portal, please contact the SLS Office (see above).
