If I save and exit while my sim is at work and/or the kids/teens are at school and then restart the game they are all back home but the icons are greyed out as though they were still away.

I'm still having this issue, even with the latest update yesterday. Should I send you my save file?

I'm still encountering the issue as well. It's not all the time, though. I think I'm having this issue when the kids have to go to school during a thunder storm, but I'll need to test this out more.

@crinrict I see it mostly on rainy days when they would rather stop in the middle of the road to open an umbrella than go to school or when the "run inside" interaction is trying to override the go to school one, and yes, have loads of mods, but that is where i can most often reproduce it, especially with multiple teens.
