Unhappy New dog pooping in the house

Hello! My family and I (myself and 5 kids) just adopted an almost 3 year old dog a couple weeks ago. She has been pooping in the basement. She will poop outside, and she is outside for a lot of the day. My kids were just with their dad all weekend and she didn't poop but as soon as they got home, my oldest noticed some downstairs.

She came from a family with a child and she gets along with my kids very well, and has already gotten quite attached and protective of them. I'm not too sure how to train her to stop pooping downstairs. Thanks so much for any help

Can you block off access to the basement for a bit while you work on potty/poop training to break the pattern/habit? Maybe use a baby gate?
