With the non-launch of Atlantis this past week, did the astronauts go back to JSC for continued training or are they still at the Cape?

They're back in Houston with their families and for continued training. They should be arriving back at KSC either Sunday or Monday (I'll double check on that later).

From NASA's release:
The STS-115 crew, Commander Brent Jett, Pilot Chris Ferguson, and mission specialists Joe Tanner, Dan Burbank, Heide Stefanyshyn-Piper and Canadian astronaut Steve MacLean, is in Houston conducting launch simulations. The astronauts will return to Kennedy on Saturday morning. They already have begun adjusting their sleep cycles to match their timeline in orbit that changed due to the new launch time.
And from the schedule of media events:
L-4 Days - Saturday, Sept. 2

10:30 a.m. - STS-115 crew arrival at Shuttle Landing Facility
