The podcast is a piece of music created and performed by The Haps, a CVU band that wanted to honor Dylan. It was performed Saturday at the YWP Coffee House.
We are saddened by the death of Dylan Peters of Williston, a senior at CVU and Burlington Technical Center, who was killed in a single-car accident Thursday afternoon. He died Friday. A memorial service will take place Wednesday, April 13, from 1:30-4:30 at Bolton Valley Resort. CVU will run buses for students and staff to attend.
By all accounts, Dylan was funny, energetic and talented. He was an extraordinary snowboarder and was known by many in that community around the state. He touched many lives. My heart goes out to all of you who knew him, to his family, to the school communities and to his neighbors.
We encourage you to write about Dylan here. Focusing your thoughts, emotions by writing is always a powerful experience. Put Dylan Peters in the keywords so we can see all the pieces. Also please check in at the memorial Facebook page some friends set up.

Please...I just want to get it out. Thank you.
I did not ever know but we walked the same halls every day and I could have known you-
I could have known you tomorrow or next week or next year.
I have passed by you in the hallways and only now am I connecting your face, your smile, with your name. I knew who you were, Dylan. I did.
Today was the longest day. I can only imagine how long it must have been for the others. Read more »
Editor's note: Forgive the intrusion. I felt this piece needed a bit of background. Champlain Valley Union High School announced this morning that Dylan Peters, a CVU senior, died Friday morning after getting into a single car accident Thursday afternoon. Our hearts reach out to this writer, to Dylan's friends, classmates, family and neighbors. -- gg
The halls are eerily silent today. Walking from class to class, only a few voices can be heard.
My school is big, yes, but that’s not to say that we’re not a close-knit community. When something happens, it effects all of us.
I think that part of why some of us are having so many issues dealing with this is that it wasn’t suicide or drunk driving or a murder or anything that tangible. No one knows what happened, really. He was driving too fast, he went off the road, he hit a tree. Going fast is something we all do, on occasion. We’re teenagers and it’s our nature. This could have happened to any of us and that’s part of why it’s so scary. My advisor keeps saying “it’s never the kids you worry about”. This didn’t happen to the boy that gets drunk every weekend or the girl who has everyone on suicide watch. As far as I know, he was normal. I didn’t know him and I’m not going to pretend to have known him. He went to my middle school. He was a year younger than me. I’m pretty sure he’s in my English class.
