Maybe when younger, but I don't think Kanba would have so many playmates of the female variety if they were still being ostracized. My guess is very few kids around them in the present know how they are tied to those "terrorists" (like how Ringo didn't; and if there was a person who would have had reason to realize, Ringo is it). I'd also say the only real reason Sho seems to have no friends is because he's so fixated on guilt over what his parents did that he's his own stumbling block when it comes to making friends, and not because the students around him know what his parents did and shun him for it. Again, in the present. Flashbacks seem to indicate in the past, when it was all fresh, their peers may have had some idea.

As an aside, it's kind of amusing how they've only seemingly gone to school...once? twice? this season. I admit to knowing next to nothing about the Japanese school system, but my own highschool flunked anyone absent more than five days a quarter.

We actually saw the scars on him in the flashback an episode or two ago. As the "incident" was unfolding, so it's always been something that had to have occurred prior to it.
It feels like years since they've been updated, btw.
Also, cake.
