My children walk like they are going to school then disappear but sometimes don't actually go to school. Then, I click the icon in the J tab, and they still won't. Also, sometimes, they go back to doing things at the house when they are late for school.
It also happens with teens going to school and teens going to work. I do get the work in an hour notification on time. However, the option to go to school/work doesn't come up in their queues until they're late. Then, it takes several attempts for them to fully go to school and remain there until the school day/job hours end.
I've seen this issue happen a few times on my file, but it was usually due to the game's processing issues; I'd usually have to pause the game and wait for the game's "checks" to catch up before it'd finally give me the notification that the sim has gone to work/school.
I know it might sound like a silly thing to try, but next time you have a sim go to school/work and disappear off the lot, try pausing the game as soon as they do; wait for like 20-30 seconds before unpausing, and see if anything prompts.
My child Sim just did this with school. I tried the 'go to school' action like three times before giving up.

merged your post with existing thread.

I would, but it may be unnecessary as this has for some reason completely stopped happening. Sims have been going to work/school normally for weeks now. Perhaps it makes sense to send over the save if the bug returns thank you for looking into it
