Looking to build a lab to help students to combat the Sasser Virus? Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the virus?

The only people likely to have a copy of Sasser (without actually being infected by it) are researchers working for anti-virus program providers. You could approach them, identifying yourself as an educator, and you may get lucky.
Alternatively, you could construct your own honeypot, and see what kinds of malware you can attract for study. You would, of course, have to take proper and responsible precautions so that your infected honeypots don't infect or interfere with anyone else's computers. But that probably goes without saying.
