Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

In Colombia, schools (ISCED 1, 2, or 3) has two calendars:

  • Calendario A: One starting at end of January, pausing in mid-June, restarting in mid-July, and finishing at the end of November (beginning December).
  • Calendario B: The same as in northern hemisphere countries - Starting at the end of August, pausing in December, restarting in January, and finishing in June.

I would like to know how can I tag this on a school, to differentiate them between Calendar A or Calendar B.

This should be acceptable like other time data as you are not trying to add the exact schedule.

The simplest is to come up with something specific with your country. There are a lot of school:*= the most being school:FR= from France, however this is for school categories.

opening_hours= should not be used. The school can still be "open" during after school and semester breaks. service_times= should be more suitable. So a possible hierarchy is something like service_times:ref:CO= for your =A and =B.

The more general option is to try to list out the school term.
A: service_times=Jan-Jun,Jul-Nov; SH closed
B: service_times=Sep-Dec,Jan-Jun; SH closed

If you have more precise ranges, you may try ISO year-week. Eg:
A: service_times=Week 4-24,28-48; SH closed
B: service_times=Week 31-50,3-26; SH closed

You can add both your country's community-decided tag and service_times= to show both the actual periods and the national designation for the system.
