You should be able to just write into the 'public' folder directly.

It seems like creating a new directory and then moving it is an
attempt to be atomic, which is absolutely the right thing to do! But
the Pages deploy is separate: the build starts from a completely clean
slate, and does not overwrite the live website being served by Pages.
It's only once the build has finished and the artifacts captured that
they're later moved in-place to serve Pages.
