Several teachers at my school were told today that they would not be back next year due to the budget. What do you say to these people? I feel guilty that I have a job. These people are my friends.

I was one of those people for the last 2 months, until I found out just a couple weeks ago that I was hired back. YAY!

You don't need to say much. Just that you'll miss them and maybe that you'll keep in touch. But please try not to complain too much about any bad circumstances at your school. That was one of the things that really got to me--I always felt like saying "well, at least you have a job!" But you sound pretty compassionate anyway, so I'm sure that won't be a problem!

a sincere "i'll miss you" is all you can do.

works, but I also think being cognizant of what else you say around them is nice. Try not to talk too much about next year plans. I was in the job loss boat and it really hurt to hear my teammates constantly chatting about next school year.
