Congratulations on making it to your second season.
My standard spring regimen is to inspect, do a little swarm prevention, I always replace the oldest or worst looking comb in each box, replace broken/rotting woodenware, clean out any mice and their damage, change out the bottom board with a clean one. I always leave my two hive bodies in place and super accordingly(sometimes reversing). If you're the treating type you want to get that done before the flow. Generally, my goal is to get my hives ready for increase or honey production. Swarm trapping has become my favorite way to increase so I mostly aim at honey production. My honey demand is greater than my production. Results of inspections determine if I need to take any other special measures.
If I see swarm cells I split, once, twice or more depending on what I'm after that year. I have split, let them make their new queens and then recombined for honey production. I NEVER cut out swarm cells because I see that as the perfect way to end up queenless. Most beekeepers are after these same goals but the big difference is when we do them and the nuances based on local flows and temperatures. I'm sure someone will have an addition or two to my comments.
