the government has made an incredible mess of handling out EIP payments (and continues to). I wouldn’t worry about  payments the kids may have received, but file the returns based on dependency rules.

I would question if the kids have already filed returns claiming their own exemptions (which would cause a rejection and could require amendments).

You seem to be using this: "that claimed the kids due to going to school"

As if that is the same as Dependent qualifications.

These "kids" likely used the Non-Filer portal to get the money. Did you ask them?
