The monks may have noticed that one of their brethren is missing but it will be likely attributed to the rebellious queerats.
Furthermore, if the Ethics Commitee had word of the children's actions, there is no way they would let them live peacefully for two years.
I think that Kiroumaru just had a general warning not to interact with human children.
Time will tell.
You know, that does make a lot of sense. Really good job reasoning this out!

The only potential problem I see with your argument here is that ominous bit of narration from "future Saki" at the end of this episode. But maybe there's a way to make that fit with what you wrote.
