I like the simplicity of this. It echos the "SH" (school holiday) code
in the opening_hours syntax, necessarily because the details of what the
holidays will be, year to year, are out of scope for OSM.

Mappers *will* want to tag the details if they're explicitly signed
though. Browsing through the values for maxspeed:conditional, you'll see
a dozen different variations of "@(when_flashing)" and "@(school_days)"
that record the details of school zone signage. And something similar
will arise for "school streets" if they feature signs with detailed info.
