Does Spring Break Re-energize our Students?

What is the purpose of spring break?
I read in a few places that the purpose of a spring break, most common originally in cold-weather regions, is to allow for the make-up of days missed because of early and mid-winter snowstorms. What a concept! In some regions, particularly for K-12 schools, the break corresponds with the Easter Holidays. Some regions organize their academic year around the Easter Holidays and end one academic term in March and begin the next after a two-week or month-long recess around Easter.
