School start date

My assistant and I were texting about our school calendar. He has heard some chatter of some schools starting 2 weeks earlier than normal. That will allow an extended Christmas break, or a winter break in January or February to offset potential school closures due to Corona or some other sickness. The number of school days would stay the same. It would be a kind of floating 2 week holiday to be placed as needed.
I told him I don't believe that would happen. He then reminded me that we usually have a school calendar approved and emailed out during the week after spring break. Our school board is now a month and a half over due for voting on a school calendar. I wonder if they are considering it?
Anyone heard any talk of this? It makes sense for attendance, but it would be tough to plan for S&E and C/SR.
