I always tried to leave my home life at home, and my school life at school. Easier said than done. Bad news that causes an emotional strain is hard to deal with alone. Talk to your pastor, your spouse, a trusted friend, or anyone who will just listen. As another poster said sometimes you just need to take a day off, even if you can't solve the problem in a day, you can gain a perspective and maybe recharge a little. If you're feeling under the pile, your students will sense this. They need you at your best. Take a deep breath, and most importantly take care of yourself.
