Chicken Pox - are the children of the house who've had it BEFORE, infectious/carriers/supposed to be quarantined?

coz my elder two are at 'activity week' at school and the younger one has it.

are we adults carrying the bugs around too? should i be keeping us all out of the way?

If you've had it, you can't carry it in your body fluids or breath. the only way you can carry it is by touching the fluid in the spots and then touching someone else straight away, iyswim.

so make sure the elder two wash their hands after touching their younger sibling, and you should be fine.
