Aside from spring, of course, when is spring break 2012?

Spring break actually starts for some schools in mid February and starts as late as the second week in April for a few, but most schools take spring break in March. So — if asking, “When is spring break 2012?” do ya actually want to know when the big weeks are?

March 5-23, 2012: unlike earlier years, weeks when the biggest number of students are out this year is quite evenly spread over those three weeks of March.
