Schools typically break for spring holiday in April, often two weeks before or after the Easter holiday. SpringBreak.com provides spring break dates for different institutions in the United States.

The time and duration of a school's spring break depend on the location and type of school. Most colleges in the United States have a one-week long Easter break from March to April in the weeks preceding the Easter holiday. K-12 institutions have a two-week long spring break called “Easter Vacation.” Schools in the state of Maine and Massachusetts hold spring break in the third week in April, which coincides with Patriots’ Day.
