    No, not really. They speak of a winter break or spring break.

    NOT A TEACHER

    I've heard Americans use the term "summer vacation" referring to the period of free time school kids get sometime between June and September (depending on the region).
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    'Vacation', 'break', and 'recess' are all used in AmE to describe time away from school.
